Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

Autodidact shirts

I was sad to see Genius Tribe close down a few years ago, BUT, they're selling the Autodidact shirts again! I always thought it was the coolest quote, but never bought one. Click on the quote below to find them:

~~~On the front: "unschooler, n : one who learns from life and love and great books and late morning conversations and big projects and eccentric uncles and eyes-wide-open and mountains and mistakes and volunteering and starry nights—instead of from classrooms and exceedingly dull textbooks and sedative lectures and interfering homework. Synonyms: homeschooler, self-schooler, autodidact, rise-out." On the back, this quote from the Teenage Liberation Handbook: “The most overwhelming reality of school is control. School controls the way you spend your time (what is life made of it not time?), how you behave, what you read, and to a large extent what you think. In school you can’t control your own life. Outside of school you can, at least to the extent that your parents trust you to. ‘Comparing me to those who are conventionally schooled,’ writes a 12-year-old unschooler, ‘Is like comparing the freedoms of a wild stallion to those of cattle in a feedlot.’”~~~
