Children can learn when they want with Unschooling

I am quoted in today's Times: “It is really important that we are exploring alternatives to the traditional model of school because it simply doesn’t work for so many children, and with the crisis in children’s mental health, we really need to be rethinking institutionalised learning.” A small piece, but positive.
Children can learn when they want with unschooling

“In our family unschooling has been a journey into autonomous learning. It is about recognising our children as persons who have the will, desire and capability to direct their own learning.” Also a fabulous thought from Peter Gray: "Self-directed education is becoming easier - previously knowledge was sequestered but now every child is carrying in their pocket all the knowledge in the world."
