Unschooling is like riding a 50 speed bicycle
Unschooling is like riding a 50 speed bicycle. We have more choices than the average 10 speed public school counterparts and we're free to switch gears faster and choose the pace at which to learn. Unschoolers are also like the Marines because we can overcome, adapt and improvise whereas public school teachers are locked into dictatorial state mandates and stiff curricula. Without much funding we've learned to be like our Depression Era grandparents because we recycle, use it up, wear it out or go without and our unschooled children still excel beyond their public school peers who have millions of dollars diverted into their programs. Freedom is a beautiful thing!
