Relaxed Homeschooling: One Alternative to Unschooling
By Christine Ajayi

Have you been considering an unschooling approach, but aren't quite comfortable with the philosophy that your children should lead (you for) their entire education?

Yet the schooled ones fail to see that this very interaction directly answers their questions. The irony escapes them. Concern with socialization overwhelms and blinds them.

Until recently the public's major concern with homeschooling was that students would suffer academically. As homeschoolers' achievements have met or, more often, exceeded the norm, that concern has given way to a new one: Socialization.
