Some thoughts ..

Posted on: September 11, 2014

When reading this article about “How do Unschoolers Turn Out?” from this website: http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2014/09/how-do-unschoolers-turn-out/, the below paragraph hit me right on the face.

In the words of one woman: “I already had a wealth of experience with self-directed study. I knew how to motivate myself, manage my time, and complete assignments without the structure that most traditional students are accustomed to. … I know how to figure things out for myself and how to get help when I need it.” Added another: “I discovered that people wanted the teacher to tell them what to think. … It had never, ever occurred to me to ask someone else to tell me what to think when I read something.

Be it public school, private school, international, homeschool, and unschool, ain’t the above  what we want to see in our children?
