Bringing Microschooling to Your Community: Interview with the Independent Women’s Forum

Don Soifer discusses today’s fast-growing microschooling movement, its history, and its transformative potential with Virginia Gentles, Director of the Independent Women’s Forum Education Freedom Center.

While the “pandemic pods” during COVID school shutdowns really launched this current wave of microschooling, its rising popularity seems rooted in response to many other factors that have caused millions of American families to reevaluate their relationships with the institutions they have historically relied upon to meet their educational needs. With more tools than ever before, digital and otherwise, easy and affordable for most families, groups like Nevada Action’s MicroschoolingNV initiative are actively building microschooling capacity in diverse communities around the nation.
