Even though new challenges to homeschooling have recently surfaced, Mike Farris is confident in the future of homeschooling.  Join Mike Smith and find out why on today’s Home School Heartbeat!

Mike Smith: Mike, is there something that really encourages you about the future of homeschooling?

Mike Farris: I’m encouraged by seeing Emma, Rachel, Ali, Mackinson, Aslan, Sean, Jenna, Cory, Abby, SueSue, Cate, Lucy, Sierra, and Addy, our fourteen grandkids, all being homeschooled. And we’ll have three more being homeschooled; well, they’ll be born in September and I guess we’ll wait till October to start homeschooling them.

I see my grandchildren being homeschooled and the oldest is just about fourteen years old, so, we’ve been at this a while now as grandparents as well. And when I see what my kids are doing as homeschooling parents and then I see my grandchildren being homeschooled, it really encourages me, not only that we did the right thing for our kids, but that this is going to last. And so I think the inter-generational nature of homeschooling is great; I also think that the new wave of homeschooling parents are really going to pull out a good energy into the movement and it will be a better movement for their involvement in the years down the road.

Mike Smith: Well, thank you very much, that’s very encouraging. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
