Unschooling Rules
55 Ways to Unlearn What We Know About Schools and Rediscover Education
While most schools continue to resist change, homeschooling families have abandoned the K–12 system and identified new, powerful, commonsense methods and goals for childhood education.

Education expert Clark Aldrich has explored the practices of homeschoolers and unschoolers (those who eschew the structure or curricula of schools) and distilled a list of 55 “rules,” like the following, that are changing both the way children are taught and our vision for schools.
  • Learn to be; learn to do; learn to know.
  • Tests don’t work. Get over it. Move on.
  • What a person learns in a classroom is how to be a person in a classroom.
  • Animals are better than books about animals.
  • Internships, apprenticeships, and interesting jobs beat term papers, textbooks, and tests.
  • The only sustainable answer to the global education challenge is a diversity of approaches.
This accessible book provides you with a path forward, whether you’re a parent or teacher, a school administrator, or a national policy decision maker.
