Priceless knowledge and insights into unschooling are within these books.
So if you are keen on knowing more about homeschooling or why I unschool, do read these books.
I have just started on 'Dumbing us Down' and the way John Taylor Gatto describes the end products of the school system was a good repesentation of myself...it was eerie...I am a perfect example of what the school system churns out....
- wait for instructions
- am not curious; have a short attention span
- forget easily
And a host of other traits that I am slowly trying to get rid off.And his idea of what a school should be with plenty of free unstructured time, self-directed learning, community service and thousands of apprenticeship to choose from seems pretty ideal to me.
