In this #Perspectives episode Scott is joined by Akilah S. Richards. Listen to hear Akilah contrast race relations in America vs. her native country of Jamaica, share her views on honoring individual freedom, and highlight the benefits of self-directed education for her two daughters who have, for example, learned several languages on their own. The conversation gets really interesting when Akilah challenges a couple of statements by Scott. Will dialogue prevail in these moments or will they digress to debate? Listen now to find out!
Akilah describes herself as a writer, mama, partner, digital nomad, and Unschooling activist. She does a bulk of this work through her podcast “Fare of The Free Child” which, “centers People of Color in liberatory living and learning practices with a particular interest in Unschooling and the Self-Directed Education movement”.
