becoming unschoolers

Ben Hewitt - rural unschooling:
..what I most want for my boys can’t be charted or graphed. It can’t be measured, at least not by common metrics. 

Kerry McDonald - urban unschooling:
“The city is our curriculum,” says McDonald. “We believe that kids learn by living in the world around them, so we immerse them in that world.” Their “classrooms”—sidewalks, museums, city parks—may appear drastically different from those of my sons. But the ethos remains the same, that a child’s learning is as natural and easy as breathing.
