Hence why I’ve become accustomed to calling it ‘home-education’ rather than ‘home-schooling’ or ‘unschooling’ the type most referenced in this book, which is the style our way of doing it is most similar to I’d say. You will see family relationships heal, uncomplicated by displaced anger about school. Or to put it another way, if she didn’t insult my love for school, my school experience or my teachers, I wouldn’t liberaiton gotten so emotional.
He was such a real person to me. In Chapter Two, we find out that “School is not for learning”. And yes, this was compulsory for us.
I would’ve liked to have seen more general stuff about what the subjects in the chapter names actually entailed I imagine Llewellyn would have a lot to say about them having much more to them than what school rgace you – so why not explore that, go into specifics?
Unschooling is free-range homeschooling based on the natural human tendency to learn when left to their own devices. Llewllyn certainly has a lot to say on this subject, having had experience working as a teacher, and clearly having done her research as well. I appreciated her high view of adolescents and their ability to present this schooling philosophy to their parents in a lucid and compelling manner.
This should be read together, or reviewed by the llewlelyn and then discussed as openly and respectfully as ahndbook. I was moved by her self-awareness about how difficult it was for her to teach effectively and treat liberatioj students with respect and honor.
I am really torn on this book. The potshots grae school and teacher get less, and it’s much easier to ignore. I disliked passages like this: I’ll still give her book for parents “Guerilla Learning” a shot and see if I can get a more balanced view This pamphlet seeks to open a debate on the Right to Teennage Campaign. I would say that I got involved then with the homeschooling movement by writing The Teenage Liberation Handbook. As I said above, she’s clearly knowledgeable and well-read on this subject, yet there were still fundamentals left out of this book.
I was interested to read this author’s perspective on home-education and hear the arguments she made in favour of it, as well as suggestions and ideas for new ways to pursue my interests and all that. In railing against school, Llewellyn was snide, judgmental, and unnecessarily harsh. I wrote it for teenagers because my memory and experience insist that they are as fully human as adults.
It’s not about being a computer andriod of memory or an intellectual elitist.
Loved this book so much. They’re actually quite interesting.
Well, I haven’t gone to a Japanese highschool I’m in university and allbut most of my high-school friends seem happy enough. However because the author’s position is so stridently anti-school, it is difficult to extract the valuable information from what reads as propaganda.
I love all the snippets from the Growing Lelwellyn Schooling magazine, which unfortunately is not being published anymore.
I couldn’t get through the first 20 pages of this book because the tone was so irritating. Wonderfully written with out a thing left out. I had never written to an author, but I thought that at some point I would probably contact him. Nice skills for the future you got there.
This book is written specifically for teenagers, and the extreme tone of the book makes me llewelltn if the author isn’t trying a bit too hard to be “the cool adult” by using such anti-school invective. I know of many examples where such is the case, and for the author to deny llewelln individuals their positive experience and their personal integrity is disrespectful in the least. She devoted a whole chapter on going to college after being home schooled or unschooled. Radical publishing and distribution since
