Schoolhouse Rocked! Lifeschooling on the Road with the Hamptons

Schoolhouse Rocked and Lifescholing on the Road - HamptonsGarritt and Yvette Hampton talk about their unconventional lifestyle homeschooling on the road while filming a documentary called Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution. How do they homeschool in a tiny travel trailer while traveling all over the country? Find out in this episode of “Life as a Lifeschooler.”

Garritt and Yvette Hampton, along with their two daughters, Brooklyn and Lacey, are passionate about God, homeschooling, and spending time together as a family. So much so in fact that last year they sold most of their possessions, purchased an RV and are traveling full-time exploring this beautiful country while filming a feature-length documentary on homeschooling called Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution.

Garritt is a movie industry veteran with credits on some of the biggest movies of the last decade. Yvette’s greatest enjoyment is being a full-time wife and mom. Garritt and Yvette are both from Southern California and are in their seventh year of homeschooling. They have a passion for helping and encouraging those just getting started or considering homeschooling, as well as those who are in the midst of it as they are.

Their strongest desire is that Schoolhouse Rocked will encourage families to homeschool with confidence, equip them to overcome the challenges that cause many to give up, and to finish strong.

Here is what I asked Garritt and Yvette on this episode of the show:

  • Tell us first of all how you started homeschooling? I know this wasn’t the original path that you had chosen, right?
  • How did the movie come about and tell us what your mission is with it?
  • Who are some of the people you’ve been able to interview?
  • Now, I was poking around on your site this afternoon and I came across the name of your production company and the meaning behind it. I love it! The name is “Bronze Oxen.” Tell our listeners why you chose that unusual name.
  • So, how many square feet is your camper and how do you make that work?
  • We’ve talked about this before, but how did you decide what to get rid of? Have you missed anything?
  • Well, to me what you are doing with this documentary and doing it while homeschooling is the classic example of “lifeschooling”. The definition of lifeschooling is “the individualized process of discovering your child’s God-given gifts and talents through real life experiences that happen within the context of your family’s unique situations and missions.”
  • I love that you heard God’s call for your family and that you stepped out in faith and followed. You didn’t let homeschooling stand in the way because you recognized the value of this type of learning. This is a Deuteronomy 6:4-9 learning environment. So, can you share with us some of the lifeschooling that has been happening in your family? How have your children grown both spiritually and academically? Have you seen the spark of any interests or talents they have?

There’s a revolution transforming American education, more than 2 million students strong, and it’s not happening in the classroom.

Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is feature-length documentary, currently in post-production and coming to a theater near you. This timely film is intended to encourage and equip homeschool families to start strong and finish well. The movie follows host, Yvette Hampton as she travels the country with her family. She talks with education experts, curriculum developers, college and university faculty and administrators, and homeschooling families at every stage in the process.  From kindergarten to college graduation and beyond. As viewers follow Yvette on this journey and share in her challenges and victories as a homeschool mom, they will gather the necessary resources and encouragement to homeschool their own children with excellence.

PRO-HOMESCHOOLING MOVIE

Schoolhouse Rocked is not an anti-public school movie. It is not an anti-government, anti-vaccination, anti-classroom, anti-NEA, or anti-Department of Education movie. Schoolhouse Rocked is a PRO-HOMESCHOOLING MOVIE. We believe that the slow, steady decline of the public schools, coupled with a rising desire among parents to take control of their children’s education and training has lead to the explosive growth of the homeschool movement – The Homeschool RevolutionSchoolhouse Rocked seeks to be a leading force in the next wave of that revolution.

The decision to homeschool is difficult.  There is so much to learn, and there are often radical changes that take place in your family. Unfortunately, not everyone will be supportive.

Well-meaning friends and relatives may believe you are going to “ruin your child.” How can you make sure that you have laid a good foundation for your child’s future? How can you respectfully defend your choice to those who disagree with you?

The Bible is full of instructions on how God desires His children to be educated. IF GOD has a definite opinion about the issue of education, wouldn’t you desire to find out what it is and how best to implement HIS WISDOM?
