Parenting3: Unschooling


Today’s guest is Gina Marks – shiatsu practitioner, blogger, mother of four homeschooled boys, and cute tiny-ish person.  We like Gina.

There are many places where you can learn more about unschooling, like from Wikipedia, Joyce Fetterall, Sandra Dodd, and Life Learning Magazine.  (And OH so many others.)

In case you didn’t know, I support unschoolers in a variety of ways, as you can see here.

I’m thrilled to have received a few blog comments on this episode from some famous dead people! …

You cannot teach a person anything; you can only help him find it within himself.” -Galileo

My grandmother wanted me to have an education, so she kept me out of school.” -Margaret Mead

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” -Albert Einstein

Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.” -Isaac Asimov

(I know they sound kinda extreme, but you can get away with that sort of thing when you’re dead.)
