We have been considering unschooling our kids when their school days come.  Unschooling is world’s different from Homeschooling.  This 13 year old describes how he does “Hack-Schooling”, which is a similar concept to unschooling. His talk is such an inspiration.  We want to help our children interact with their world using tools like the internet through channels of their own interests. Learning to be creative, thoughtful, and emotionally intelligent people is more important than memorizing math tables or historical events. It is my growing opinion that traditional school is a stress-filled time waster that teaches children to memorize useless information.  Basically it is glorified day-care with some learning.
