Interview with Barb Lundgren

In the July/August 2009 Home Education Magazine, Mary Nix interviews long-time Texas unschooler and founder of the international Rethinking Education Conference, Barb Lundgren:

Mary: How has the conference changed over the years?

Barb: While Rethinking Education has always been an unschooling conference, I would say that the biggest change throughout the years was to move from calling it a homeschool conference in it’s early years to declaring it an unschooling conference in more recent years. I have witnessed a dramatic evolution in the “type” of family that attends, the way parents interact with their children, the unconditional support that parents want to be offering themselves and their families.

Since 1984, Home Education Magazine has delivered focused and extensive coverage of homeschooling with the most timely articles, interviews with homeschool personalities, regular columns by outstanding advocates for homeschooling, and writing which shares the joys of a family life that homeschooling makes so easy.
