Interview with Jake Nix

The March-April, 2010 issue of Home Education Magazine features Mary Nix interviewing her youngest son, Jake, home from college on his first year living away from home. Jake tells us homeschooling, and more specifically interest based learning, helped him to realize that his education was his own responsibility: “Following my own interests from a young age helped me develop independent study skills, critical thinking ability and helped me to develop a thirst for knowledge, not just the ability to learn something so I could pass a test.”

Jake talks about the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), and shares the advice he’d give homeschooling parents from his own perspective as a homeschooled youngster.
