Homeschool Unrefined

Jan 27, 2020

So, like, what even is deschooling?! The fact is this: We are immersed in a schooled mindset. It's the air we breathe, the water we swim in. Deschooling is a way to reprogram our thinking about learning.  We're going to talk through this essential homeschooling tool: What is it? Why bother? What does it actually look like? And what comes next?


Highlights from this episode:

  • Learning is natural and happening all the time.
  • Deschooling doesn't mean it's a free for all. 
  • Deschooling lets us concentrate on connection. 
  • Deschooling teaches us that deep thinking is deep thinking--it doesn't matter if it's about math or Minecraft.
  • Don't use your status as an adult as a weapon.
  • As parents, we are continually deschooling ourselves.
