I’m hosting an Unschooling Open House at my virtual learning center, and you’re invited! Sign up below to RSVP.

From Saturday, May 21 through Sunday, May 22, I’ll open up the doors to my entire unschooling learning space.
Watch and engage with more than 24 interactive lectures, or just pick the ones that pique your interest.

Leave your questions in each lecture’s discussion section.
I’ll log in several times throughout both days to answer every single one.

You can also ask me questions during Open House via Twitter (@radicalselfie).

A Simple Definition:

Unschooling is essentially a curiosity-led approach to lifelong learning devoid of testing and predefined curricula. It leaves the exploration and implementation of knowledge to children, instead of relying on the passing of information from adults and books, based on what is believed (by adults) to be necessary learning. This approach has been an invaluable resource for our family as we raise children, travel the world, and continue to turn our interests into income.

One family’s rationale:

Since most of us were brought up to believe that compulsory education is the path to achieving the goals of financial success and responsible adulthood, we’ve learned to rely on to the school system to arm us with the skills to attain those goals.

When teachers and students are removed from a child’s learning environment, many adults become concerned in part because they’re not familiar with any other models for readying children for life. But not all schooled children grow up to become successful, responsible adults.

And in many cases, children are unhappy or uncomfortable in their school settings because they don’t learn the way other children learn, or because they have unaddressed personal circumstances that stop them from focusing on learning.

As an unschooling family, we believe that school is one example of how a healthy childhood can be spent – but that there are other options, and contrary to popular belief, children can (and will) still learn, engage, socialize, and be challenged while preparing for adulthood through various non-school experiences.
