This is the rest of my thought.
Unschooling might better be called selective learning. We all do it. My bro=
ther learned to read when he wanted to build a model car. Have you ever rea=
d those work sheets? He had been getting by in school on D's and could not=
be said to actually read. Anyway from models to books. He pastors a church=
these days -- great Bible student and teacher.
As I said in the first part - no one fit is right for everyone and unschool=
ing is not likely to catch on as a movement. Parents don't have the time.
Many of the life skills we learn are offshoots of disciplines taught in cla=
ssrooms. Who knew algebra works when putting round containers in a square f=
I think learning (real learning) is something we do for ourselves or it ha=
s little real significance in our lives.
