Unschooling
 
 
 

The unschooling movement is central to the traditional homeschooling movement.  Unlike the newer homeschool groups (some religious, some just having kids that don't do well in school), the original homeschoolers were primarily ideologically or philosophically motivated.
 
Unschoolers had a vision of education which totally rejected the institutional educational systems that have evolved.
 
Based on the writings of Holt, Gatto, and others, they approach education as a pervasive part of life driven by humans natural curiosity and interest. They feel that in many cases, educational interest is highly curtailed by the impact of the educational institutions.
