What is unschooling?
Addressing the common criticisms of unschooling and answering how colleges look at homeschooling/unschooling.
Many know that my wife and I have made the decision to homeschool our kids. But few are aware that we don't actually homeschool. But before you call CPS on us, let me explain. We practice something called unschooling.
Unschooling posits that traditional methods of academia, including curriclum, lectures styled teaching, and grading system don't align with how kids naturally learn and as such creates good factory-styled workers.
Unschooling suggests that kids learn better in a natural environment through personal experiences. So more succinctly put, kids learn more efficiently by doing things in the real world (and subsequently by doing real-world tasks).
