RADical Design for LEARNING -- Survey Seminar and Practical Action Laboratory
"Wtf is going on? Why are people limping out of 20 years of schooling without directed motivation, a solid internal compass, or a commitment to passionately pursuing their interests? Let's examine why in a cozy, edgy, authentic seminar where we balance theory with real-world action (praxis). We'll study the radical learning greats such as Illich, Papert, and Llewelyn, with focused readings and videos followed by discussion. Whenever possible we'll try to have the authors or their direct students available for Q&A&Q. And through hands-on labs and projects we'll design and enact experience-based transformations, like improvised music, consciousness altering strategies, electronics workshops etc. We can't wait to see you realize your wonderful ideas!"

IAmA 15 year old who unschools, AmA : IAmA
"I just got back from Grace's Not Back To School Camp where I spent one week with a group of other kids who are also unschooling, a great majority of these kids are unbelievably smart and directed.

My personal history is that I went to public school from preschool to grade 8, where although my grades were top notch, but I was so depressed that I couldn't keep it up. I stopped feeling interested in anything. Eventually I got my parents to take the book seriously and let me drop out for a while. Since then my mental health has grown leaps and bounds, I have rediscovered my love for marine biology, made friends across the country, and become a more mellow person in general. I love life now.

I really hope I didn't make a small spelling mistake that I missed in proofreading this, just to have everyone judge my method of schooling based on it.

TL;DR: I don't go to school, I teach myself. I went from a depressed shell of a kid to someone who loves life and is less scared of the future."
