Summary

During production, Yvette and her family traveled around the country to speak with education experts and homeschool families about their thoughts on the increasing interest in homeschooling in the United States. In this conversation, Robert asks Yvette about her motivation for creating Schoolhouse Rocked and what lessons she learned along the way.

“For the first time I think ever in our nation, parents are finally waking up. They’re starting to see firsthand what’s going on in the public school system… Parents are finally starting to ask the question, ‘Wait a minute. Who’s teaching my kids and what exactly are they being taught?'”
