Resource description[edit]

Unschooling is an educational philosophy and practice that considers traditional schooling as possibly detrimental to a person's education. Unschooling is usually classified as a subcategory of homeschooling that does not use a fixed curriculum. Without any curriculum dictating a student’s learning path, the child is free to explore what he or she finds naturally interesting.[1]

Readings[edit]

"Longer school years aren't the answer. The problem is school itself. Compulsory teach-and-test simply doesn't work."
"We Don't Need No Education, at least not of the traditional, compulsory, watch-the-clock-until-the-bell-rings kind. As a growing movement of unschoolers believe, a steady diet of standardized testing and indoor inactivity is choking the creativity right out of our kids. The alternative: set 'em free."
