Schooling is unnatural, says Home School advocate and author, Caprice Lea

What a provocative conversation, about so many topics! From spirituality to life on earth, to how our current education system that is just 200 years old dumbs us down!

Caprice Lea has authored two books, HEALING FROM SCHOOL and INSTEAD OF SCHOOLING. She has made her mission to challenge our age old public school system and what it has been teaching our kids. She actually home schooled her two daughters.

But you might ask, she has an MBA in finance from Carnegie Mellon and BAs in Cultural Anthropology and International Relations from the University of Virginia: why does she question the education system?

Precisely why you may want to listen to this episode!

Caprice is like the avatar for consciousness. You may not agree with all that you hear, but she will surely make you think about what you believe in!


Here are some provocative ideas that make you want to sit up and take notice:

✅ “schooling is unnatural. It’s not something that’s been with us for centuries”

✅”look beyond the school building and curriculum. Does the school teach kids to reflexively obey authority?”

✅”how many minutes a day a child get to relax and truly be a child, in our system?”

✅”why do we have to make every child be the same age, by grade? How does it incorporate our human nature into this set-up? Isn’t it better to have mixed ages with shared interests?”

And so many more!
