Home School? How About World School?

Public TV and radio über travel guy Rick Steves has a new radio hour on American families that take their own children out of school for up to year to pursue family study-abroad opportunities. 

The prime guests of the hour are Steve and Toby Rhine of Salem, Ore., teachers themselves who pulled their three children out of their local schools to spend eight months seeing all of the major continents of the world. Toby Rhine says she didn’t consider the experience one of home schooling but rather “world schooling.”

The Rhines have written a book on the experience, A Brilliant Teacher, now out from Sawtooth Press.

The program can accessed from the Web site for those who have Windows Media. The Steves radio program is also accessible as an iTunes Store podcast.
