Unschooling: finding your inner hippie

Do you ever find yourself thinking, What the heck is unschoolingAnd who are these crazy hippies who practice it?  And don't they know they are involved in a social experiment that will probably cause their children to be illiterate/on welfare their whole lives/never bathe/talk to themselves in public places/not know how to socialize with other people/never get married and have children of their own/end up in jail/or living in a cardboard box by the library which is ironic since they won't be able to read?

Or are you of the renegade variety yourself, so you find yourself thinking, What the heck is unschooling?  And who are these marvelous trend-setters who practice it?  And where do they get the chutzpah to buck tradition and follow an uncharted path?  And don't they know that it's their duty as Superheroes of Awesomeness to tell us all about this social experiment that is producing these wonderfully creative/self-guided learners/with amazing social skills/who spend their days exploring their passions and interacting with other people?

(As a card-carrying "bipole", I'm certain that it's only possible to feel one of these two extremes.)

Silly Nature Boy, dissected sheep hearts are friends, not food!

Wanna know how we do it?  I recently guest posted over at  Check it out.
