Michael Farris On Homeschooling in America

Hosted byCLT|

Michael Farris is the founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), the founder of Patrick Henry College, and the current president and CEO of the Alliance Defending Freedom. On this episode, he discusses the cultural environment of the early 1980s which acted as the impetus for HSLDA’s founding—every state Attorney General considered homeschooling unlawful. He also discusses the creation of Patrick Henry College, which boasts exceptional outcomes in pre-law education to include twelve national moot court championships, one international moot court championship, and average LSAT scores which rival Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Additionally, Michael discusses important cases in his career, to include People v. DeJonge, in which the requirement for homeschooling parents to hold professional teaching certifications was deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Michigan.
