Episode 46 (Epilogue): Schooling Options

Tonight on Maternally Yours, Ryan and Laura discussed the myriad of options Sarasota parents have when choosing methods of education for our children. We heard from parents of students who are members of the public, Montessori, Waldorf, homeschool and unschooling philosophies. The Conversation was insanely informative, if we do say so ourselves, and we encourage you to listen to the full podcast.

Below is a listing of resources we used in preparing for the show in addition to resources shared by our guests. Since we ran short on time, and our gusts we unable to share their entire breadth of knowledge of their own education philosophies, we will continue adding to this post as their resources trickle in.
