Why are alternative educational methods considered “controversial”?

Why are alternative educational methods considered “controversial”?

Jen and Matt dive into counter-cultural beliefs around education. While many appear to thrive in our traditional system of schooling - many other children languish. We discuss parenting with high expectations and consistency, leading by example, and educating kids to become self-sufficient adults. How do we empower our brilliant young heroes to make unique contributions to the world - rather than suck it dry?
