About this talk
Pat Farenga talks about trusting the process of self-directed learning and every child’s unique learning path. His latest project is Starting to Homeschool with Pat Farenga (http://www.startingtohomeschool.com/)—a series of videos, publications, and online support. Pat Farenga brings more than 34 years of fieldwork, advocacy, and personal experience (he and his wife unschooled their three daughters) to help parents and children learn in their own ways. Farenga is a writer and education activist who addresses academic and general audiences about working with children, not on children, to help them learn. He worked closely with one of the founders of the modern homeschooling movement, the late author and teacher John Holt, and published Growing Without Schooling magazine (GWS). Farenga speaks as a homeschooling expert at education conferences around the world as well as on commercial radio and television talk shows in the United States and abroad. Farenga writes about homeschooling and self-directed learning for a number of publications and operates the John Holt/Growing Without Schooling website, www.johnholtgws.com. He is also a founding member of www.alternativestoschool.com. This interview was presented at the Homeschooling Global Summit 2020. Learn more at https://2020.hgsummit.com/.
