All across America and the rest of the world, parents are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the state of public education, and a growing number are choosing to pull their children out of school and seek alternative ways to educate them.
Class Dismissed aims to be the first feature-length documentary that will focus on the topic of education, specifically the validity of homeschooling as an alternative to the industrial school model. From home study and kitchen table math, to perpetual recess and park days, Class Dismissed follows the story of an ordinary American family in their quest to educate their children outside the school system. As they struggle to discover what path is best for them, the social ramifications of their choices come to light, family dynamics are revealed and they come to realize that homeschooling is not just an educational choice, but also a lifestyle choice that affects the very heart of a family.
The Association for Homeschooling has become a corporate sponsor of Class Dismissed in order to help pay for the final shoots, and go towards post-production equipment & services. The estimated completion date for this film is September 2013. Parents that are also interested to support this films can click here.
