Aaron McKeon is a husband, father of two young children, and Survival Podcast listener who several years ago decided to set his family on a course towards resilience, un-dependence, and a more fulfilling lifestyle better aligned with their personal values.
As part of that journey, he and his wife decided they wanted to homeschool their children but quickly learned how intimidating executing on that decision could become. Recognizing a gap in the resources available to would-be homeschoolers, Aaron decided to create the online resource he had hoped for from the beginning. He’s taken advantage of his background as a web developer and created an extensive website as a side-hustle while maintaining his current nine-to-five in Corporate America.
Aaron joins us today to discuss is the challenge faced by would-be or brand-new home schoolers, from the standpoint of deciding to home school as well as where you start once you make that decision. Homeschooling is the exact opposite of one-size-fits all and it can be difficult figuring out where to start, who to talk to, what resources to use, and how to deal with legal requirements.
Aaron’s website Be.Education is a website created to close the loop from product usage back to newbie home schooler, with usage data being linked to specific philosophical viewpoints and the learning styles of individual children. Because data is linked to the parent and child’s profile, this better informs new home schoolers who fit a similar profile.
