Every parent wants their child to succeed. So why are many of their kids suffering in school?
The answer is complicated. But the solutions to these problems are quite simple.

When students are allowed to pursue their own interests and passions they restore their motivation in life. They begin to understand that they create their futures and take responsibility for achieving their own goals. It’s a beautiful thing.
Top educators from around the world are gathering to help parents understand the philosophies and practices of their respectful schools, academies, and programs. Many of these educational options have been operating successfully for over ten years.
After years of working with parents and students, these leaders have empowered thousands of lives. In many cases, their students become paid professionals in fields they love.
Attendees of the Education Options Expo will learn about: self-directed learning centers, apprenticeships, holistic schools, journalism school, homeschooling, deschooling, democratic schools, hip-hop education, self-directed curricula, and threat prevention tactics.
“Everyone can point out problems in the school system. But the founders of these schools, academies, and programs have created real solutions for the problems we see in schools. When parents discover these kinds of respectful educational options for their kids they become filled with hope and courage. Then, as their kids begin pursuing their interests and passions, they start developing critical skills and attitudes which lead them to a life of success and fulfilment,” says David Rodriguez, Founder of the Education Options Expo.
