          Great School Debate

          November 24, 2006

          Parents want the best for their children, but what’s the best way to educate them? Dr. Phil’s guests face off in a debate about whether to school, homeschool or unschool.



          To School or Not to School?

          Dayna and her husband, Joe, call themselves radical unschoolers. They say education happens as a side effect of life, and they don’t believe in tests, curriculums or grades.


          Are their three kids learning what they need to know? 


          Overprotective Mom?

          RaeAnne says public schools are death traps and wants to homeschool her children. Her husband, Steve, says their kids are safer at school than they are at home.  


          Can this couple reach a compromise? 


          The Audience Sounds Off

          Teachers, homeschooling parents and unschoolers weigh in on the debate. 




          What does Dr. Phil think?



          Ruined by Homeschooling? 

          Nicole feels like an outcast at 26. She says she hated being educated at home, and couldn’t relate to other kids.   



          “It messed me up for a long time.”
