I’m making my way through Kerry McDonald’s UNSCHOOLED (2019), reading it in conjunction with an older book which features a similar assessment of the failed public “schools.” I’ve read about unschooling before, though not in the detail McDonald goes into. It’s excellent and I recommend it only three chapters in.
The concept is like the Sudbury School model, but at home – self-directed learning. It’s one of those things that is so easy and yet so counter to what we’ve all been lied to about that it’s hard to fathom that it works. But it most assuredly does. More soon.
