Overview

In the absence of school, what do children do? They play. They do what brings them joy. They do what they need to do to get from point A to point B, learning useful skills along the way.

This is a practical handbook on learning without school. It's about the hows as well as the whys of unschooling. You'll find out how unschoolers learn "the basics" and how they meet legal requirements without sacrificing their ideals.

The unschooling approach to life, in general, describes the way we learn naturally when left to pursue our own personal interests. As unschoolers, we own our interests-our passions, dreams, and goals-and also the responsibility for pursuing and attaining them. We respond to our desires and go after our dreams with enthusiasm. Unschooling parents and their children live and learn together, helping each other, making discoveries, solving mysteries, and sharing adventures. Ready to have some fun?
