I don’t have to go to school, I’m home schooled.
That book, Nim’s Island. A great adventure story. Totally believable yet unbelievable.
A bit like unschooling.
Your kids don’t go to school?
To many, that is an unbelievable concept.
But the learning is believable. The reading. The discussions. The self discipline.
Yes, because while we don’t have school structure, we do have family and life and work structure.
So, I hear a son say ” I will come to play Band Hero, in half an hour, another half hour of writing.”
Or I see a son reading Mathematician’s Delight during his university holidays.
Or practice the piano, several times a day, without a reminder.
That unbelievable concept of unschooliing, lived out, as Nim lived her life, learning in freedom, in that book and movie.
