Kansas City Star article on Unschooling

A new article on unschooling.

What's coolest about it is the expert they quoted was basically supportive!

Someone said "I turned the TV off because I was tired of fighting with the cartoon network"
or something and I think the same person was quoted as saying "I 'strew their paths'".

Unschooling as a Radical Alternative (yes, there's a typo)
Not new, but new to some people.

That was found when Kelly Lovejoy discovered an article by her here:
Three Stages of Unschooling. The main page of that site is
The International Association for Learning Alternatives

Carnival of Unschooling

Unschooling Voices #2 is up at Joanne's place. This issue's topic is "Do you extend the principles of unschooling (trust, freedom, etc) into any other areas of your child's life"?

The topic for September is from Laurie: "I would love to hear other unschoolers thoughts regarding allowance or payment for odd jobs or whatever you want to call it. I see a major benefit from the kids managing their own money but I’m not sure that I want to pay an “allowance” to the kids every week. But if I pay per job, do I pay to have them clean their room or do I only pay for odd jobs? Anyway, I’d love to hear the other thoughts/ideas/methods other unschoolers incorporate".
