"Unschooling" Appeals to Some


I think this is probably the calmest, cleanest article on unschooling I've ever seen (that wasn't by and for unschoolers, I mean).

This might be a good one for some people to send to relatives, I think.

Sacramento Bee article

"No core subjects, no imposed curricula? You must be unschooled."

The sidebar is pretty good. The last quote shown on page 1 unfortunately could make it seem that Pam Sorooshian thinks it's neglect. The sidebar disputes that. I couldn't get to page 2.

2007, and one great article

-=-Isabel, who was listening as her mother explained the philosophy, turned and asked her, "What's a marine biologist?" Pozos answered, teaching her child without her daughter ever knowing she was being lectured.-=-

Uh.... She WASn't being lectured. Her mom was answering a question, just as she would've answered for a reporter or a neighbor. But anyway...

That's from the most positive unschooling article I've seen, maybe ever.

There's only ONE quote from an "expert," and not two. That makes it twice as good as the others even if the rest weren't great (which it is).
