Butch created Independent Education (“IndED”) in 2015 as a “MicroSchool” solution to the conundrum of homeschooling for those who never planned to homeschool. With a “Great Ideas” foundation and a focus on communication skills and character development, IndED offers a comprehensive approach to thoughtful education for the whole family.
