Last night on the radio

I got a call from my father-in-law last night. He thought I might want to turn on MPR (MinnesotaPublicRadio) at 9:00. He had heard that there was going to be a show on about homeschooling/unschooling. He wanted to listen but had something else going on so was going to miss it.

So after our fix of American Idol I let all the kiddos know that there was going to be a show on the radio about homeschooling and maybe about unschooling. :) We tuned in and much to our delight it was all about unschooling and even more to our delight it was Valerie Fitzenreiter and her daughter Laurie Chancey. Valerie wrote the book _The Unprocessed Child_
and we were lucky enought to meet her at the Live and Learn a few years ago.

I thought the interview was great. The host of the show was new to the idea of unschooling but the whole interview went pretty smooth. Great job Valerie and Laurie! Here's the link to the interview.
The Story
If that isn't working, as far as when they do another story, the interview was ran on February 21 2007, if you need to search.
