Knowledge, Learning, Community
This is a very nice project from Clark Aldrich as he describes 'rules' for unschooling. Of course, since it's unschooling, these are more like guidelines or suggestions. Or maybe even ideals, such as the first rule, 'Children should be raised by people who love them'. Yes, that would be a good start. The remainder of the rules are more or less practical, including a reaffirmation of an old favorite ("The core curriculum for academic style content for most children is simply reading, writing, and arithmetic") or a declaration of academic independence ("There are only two reasons to learn something. Either because you need it or because you love it.") If you start with the first rule, click on the 'Newer Post' link at the bottom left of the page to move from rule to rule. It's a journey well worth taking.
