    This is a definitely a must read for parents who are just beginning to discover the inner workings of the unschooling movement.Here are three quotes I believe articulate the authors ideology. The first quote, "We are not going to call you students anymore, we are going to call you researchers." I love that idea and from now on my home schooled children will be researchers. I believe this next quote is true more often than not.

The first quote, "We are not going to call you students anymore, we are going to call you researchers." I love that idea and from now on my home schooled children will be researchers. I believe this next quote is true more often than not. That quote states, "I regard schools as day prisons, a really unimaginative and dull and anti-democratic kind of idea". Occasionally, there are stats listed. For instance, "You remember 50% on average, of what goes on in a purposive conversation, whereas you only remember 5%-10% of a formally taught presentation". A great attribute to this book is how many resources it shares. One of the resources from the book I am investigating is a website. Check out www.EducationRevolution.org.

    DNF This had a lot of good references that I saved and a few inspiring quotes, but I didn't enjoy the format. I would recommend this to anyone interested though. It was worth what little time I spent on it. DNF This had a lot of good references that I saved and a few inspiring quotes, but I didn't enjoy the format.

    Excellent essays by a number of educators, and those prolific in the field of unschooling - advocates, former teachers, writers, psychologists, and child development experts. Always enlightening to read about alternative ways of educating our children, without the continual focus on "fixing" a system that just doesn't work in the first place. Refreshing and highly recommended for parents wanting to deschool themselves, or wanting reassurance that they are on the right track with their choice to Excellent essays by a number of educators, and those prolific in the field of unschooling - advocates, former teachers, writers, psychologists, and child development experts.

    LOVE this book. So much great content packed into one book. Learning about unschooling and other alternative educational styles from actual people's point of views has helped me understand my kids and how to help them learn. Its also provided me with resources to check into. All the possibilities. I may just have to order a paperback copy of this book for my shelf. LOVE this book.
