Last night I gave a second free seminar on how (and why) to cooperatively unschool our children in Jamaica Plain. Many parents have shared concerns about sending their children to school and they are justified to feel this way. There appears to be a ground swell regarding this topic and as a result it's time to organize! I will be giving another seminar at Boing! on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:00pm. Please register at: www.homeschooling.eventbrite.com.
I recommend reading the following book: Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto to get started, it's short and powerful. Also: Free-Range Kids is an excellent book if you are interested in raising self reliant and confident adults. AuthenticParent.com is another site I subscribe to. I created this post as way for all of the parents who are considering this to comment and find each other. And....my biggest dream: Adventure Playgrounds. How can we make this happen in Jamaica Plain?
