[PODCAST] #477: What Breitbart Knew: Lessons In Media Literacy

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadFive years ago this week, Andrew Breitbart passed away very suddenly and, as some have argued, rather suspiciously. It was just weeks after his energetic CPAC speech where he told the crowd about his plans to "vet" Obama in the 2012 election by releasing damning videos from his Harvard days.

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.


Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school.

Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students (deschooling), home-educating parents (unschooling), and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization (self-directed learning). To see every topic at a glance, check out the site map.
