Part Two of Two Today's show is intended as a resource for listeners looking to share the ideas of alternative education and self directed learning with their friends and family, or with anyone wants to learn more about these subjects.
Blake Boles builds exciting alternatives to traditional school for self-directed young people. He runs the company Unschool Adventures and is the author of The Art of Self-Directed Learning, Better Than College, and College Without High School.

2. Why Schooling is not the same as education
3. John Taylor Gatto's definition of real education
4. The attributes of an educated person
5. Self-Determination Theory and self directed learning
6. Promising developments in educational alternatives
7. How more people can gain access to alternative education
8. How parents improve their children's educational experience even if they can't take them out of public school
