'Learn Free' (an unschooling documentary)

Today I am watching this documentary about “unschooling”.  This is a model of education without the typical textbooks and curriculum and instead is a model of education where the environment of the child is their classroom and the interests of the child are facilitated by the parents.  I am very interested in this model for our children.  What do you think?

“Learn Free” is a documentary about unschooling which is an educational philosophy that states children learn best by not attending traditional school, but rather through their own interests and by living life.

Astra Taylor on the Unschooled Life

I absolutely LOVE this talk on unschooling. Hear first hand from a successful stable adult who was raised without any formal education!

 

Raised by independent-thinking bohemian parents, Taylor was unschooled until age 13. Join the filmmaker as she shares her personal experiences of growing up home-schooled without a curriculum or schedule, and how it has shaped her educational philosophy and development as an artist.
