  • HOMESCHOOLNG. UNSCHOOLING. WHAT’S THE DIFF?

    I’ve always viewed “homeschooling” mostly as a legal term. I think of “unschooling” as a flavor of homeschooling. Others seem to disagree:

    It’s this same style of unstructured, holistic ‘education’ that I raised my son with, thinking I was ‘home-schooling’ him and not even knowing that I was actually un-schooling him. I had no formal programme, and I just did what seemed necessary at the time to teach him what he needed. Most of my work was done by reading books to him.
