Hope for Homeschooling Struggling Learners – Anna Meli, Dealing with Dyslexia

Anna attended public preschool and kindergarten, but severe dyslexia caused her mom, who knew she was smart and capable, to bring her home in order to keep her from being improperly labeled and segregated by the public schools. While her education wasn’t easy, her mom persisted and finally found a program that allowed her to learn to read. Even though reading is still a struggle and she didn’t learn to read until very late, homeschooling allowed her the freedom to pursue other passions and talents and provided the individualized education that she needed to succeed.

We had a great time interviewing Josh Tolley for Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution. One of the themes that has been repeated often in our interviews for the movie is that homeschooling gives families the opportunity to create healthy family businesses, and that Involving your children in the business and family economy grounds their education in real-life principals. Josh’s message of entrepreneurship serves homeschooling families well, and Josh and his Purple Monkey Garage mechanics are out on the road helping families to put this idea into practice, by “fixing businesses, repairing lives”, through his book EVANGELPRENEUR and the great training from Purple Monkey University.
