Minnesota Public Radio interviews the Traaseth Family

The latest trend in education: Unschooling
Minnesota Public Radio Thu, 17 May 2007 11:02 PM PDT
Unschooling is an unstructured approach to education. Children don't have classes, text books or teachers. Instead they pick their own areas to study. They learn about the world by living in it.

Roya Sorooshian is quoted there too.


The obligatory naysaying "expert" is particularly irritating in this one, but it seems to be what all reporters think they MUST do to "be fair," which is ask someone who has no real idea about unschooling.

It is what reporters are taught. They aren't supposed to put their own views into the news. They just ask people from both sides of the issue. It's the fault of the "experts" who keep spouting off to reporters about subjects they know little about.
