It’s A Whole New World

October 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

Daughter started her first high school course this week and Son just signed up for his first college course. Not bad for a bunch of unschoolers, eh?

Actually, I’m convinced that it’s because we’ve spent the last four years deschooling and unschooling that both kids have a renewed excitement for learning and understand the benefits of “choosing” a more formal education.

By stepping back from the “have to” of public education and ambling our way through life at our pace, in our direction and following our own path we’ve allowed ourselves to gain a much clearer perspective about the world around us.

In this day and age an education has never been easier to attain.  Information is everywhere and most importantly access to it is right at our fingertips. Why sit in a classroom for 6 1/2 hours a day when you can go out into the world (or sit at home in your jammies) and find out whatever it is you want to know?

It’s most definitely a whole new world.

Now, if I can just come to terms with how fast my kids are growing up!   😀
