Unschooling is an educational method and philosophy that rejects compulsory school as a primary means for learning. Unschoolers learn through their natural life experiences including play, game play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, internships and work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction. Basically no schoolwork at all.

  • The idea of a world full of idiots scares me more that the motherfvcking boogieman.

  • Honestly, you need a basis of information to begin your career. As inefficient as school is, it is currently the most widespread way to educate the masses.

  • If you think children, and TEENAGERS will just learn on their own, your stupid. Test Scores show School children do radically better than unschooled children.

  • It's never been shown to actually work effectively.

@MD: Just because people are educated differently does not make them uneducated.

@Pozessed Just because that's true doesn't mean it always applies. It s still entirely possible for someone to be dumber because of how they were educated. Besides, the premise of Unschool is that your child shouldn't be educated... He will educate himself and learn by living. Basically, he learns the same way hillbillies learn, by not learning at all.

Im pro tho the voteing period has ended. Ban gov funds to k-12, headstart/preschool, remedial classes, and all college courses that dont teach whats needed to make survival products(renewable energy, water purifiers, heating and cooling, shelter, healthcare supplies and services for testing for and treating physical healthy problems and birth control, soap...)and survival services(like surgery..). Only have a highly efficient job training program that doesnt teach anything unnecessary for the job, to teach how to make survival products and do survival services(as above) give a gov no intrest, credit wont go down if not repaid, no collateral, confidential loan to those who cant afford it, where they dont have to pay it back until they have over $33,000 man made property value. The only reason for gov mandated school is to: Dumb Down dont let them know how to independently care for or defend themself, make survival needs or weapons, or where its food comes from, to keep them dependent. Deprive them of useful important info, truth,and non-words/pictures/video info by forcing/intimidating them to go to school school(day prison uneducation camp) is only to train slaves to obey(read,write,say,do as told), regeritate lies. They tell you its good for you, because they think its good for you to be a slave. Watch harry potter tyranical school movie occupy its mind w the most useless boring info. Dont teach it anything that could help it. Illiterate in useful words- only teach words no one uses. Force to shut up and sit still in chair to weaken body and immunity and reduce blood flow to brain to dum it down drug/poison it to make it weak so it wont move, experiment, explore or travel, to make it dum. Keep them compartmentalized, isolated, dont let them socialize or travel, only know how to do 1 repetitive job deindividualize to collectivize punish non-conformity. Schools target children because there small, weak, easy to control order them to look at books filled w info schools admit has no application that the student will never use in their life. If the info had application, the student wouldnt be allowed access to resources necessary to apply that info. They forget the useless info right after the test. The only reason for school-day-prison is to create weak obedient slaves.
