What Every Homeschooler Needs To Know About Science

Hey, homeschoolers!

Science has been in the news a lot lately. And misunderstanding about science has me taking action this week. You may not know that my education and even my training as a psychologist centered much more on doing and analyzing research then it did on clinical practice. In fact, my job in graduate school was coordinating clinical drug trials.

In this episode, I’m going to use what I know about science to share three principles our kids must learn while they are in our homeschools. If they don’t, they can be seriously misled, even if they do well on their college entrance exams.

  1. I want to comment on your podcast episode about what we should teach our kids about science. While I agree with your definitions of what science is and that expert scientific opinions change, I think ignoring the “possibility” that masks could help slow the spread of Covid-19 while causing zero risks to their wearers is irresponsible. There is in fact enough validated science to prove that a mask helps limit the spread of airborne viruses. This is why medical staff wear them in hundreds of different medical settings. It seems like your podcast is giving people who don’t “want” to wear masks an excuse not to do so. We absolutely need more time to learn about Covid-19 but in the meantime there is enough science to support mask wearing in order to help slow the spread of this virus.
