The statistics tell the story. In spring of 2019, there were approximately 2.5 million American homeschool students. By the 2020-2021 school year, that number had blossomed to 3.7 million, with estimates of over 5 million students homeschooling in 2022. SCHOOLHOUSE ROCKED follows filmmakers Yvette and Garritt Hampton and their children as they travel the country in an RV, exploring the growth of homeschooling. Viewers follow Yvette’s progression from strong opponent to homeschooling, to reluctant homeschooler and first-time teacher, to outspoken advocate for this growing education revolution. Along the way, viewers share in their challenges and victories, and gather the necessary resources and encouragement to homeschool with excellence. The film features interviews with homeschooling families, education experts, faith leaders, and homeschooling advocates, including Sam Sorbo, Dr. Carol Swain, Heidi St. John, Ken Ham, Bryan Osborne, Zan Tyler, Josh Tolley, Nanette and Rod Brown, and Israel Wayne. Also featured are prominent homeschooling organizations including the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), Classical Conversations, and state homeschool organizations.
