Unschooler hacks his way through education

Meet Dale Stephens, the unschooler who is hacking his way through education and loving it. He began unschooling at the end of fifth grade, has traveled the world and written a book (Hacking Your Education: Ditch the Lectures, Save Tens of Thousands, and Learn More Than Your Peers Ever Will), and he's only 21.

"My mom and dad have always been my biggest supporters. I think they both had parents who said no to them a lot. It surprises me how many parents just don't believe in their children."

Kudos to Dale. This is a great example of what can happen when schooling gets out of the way of education!
