Today in America, two million primary- and secondary-school students are homeschooled, growing at a rate of 10 percent annually. Popular blogger, author, and former child actor Quinn Cummings recounts her family's decision to wade into the unfamiliar waters of homeschooling when her daughter Alice begins slacking off in school. Despite Cummings’ lack of discipline and strong aversion to math, she dives in head first, trying out the latest trends and attending key conferences. Part memoir, part social commentary, and part how-not-to guide, The Year of Learning Dangerously shares the highlights and lowlights Quinn experiences as she takes her daughter's education into her own hands.

This discussion is free and open to the public.
