We are unschooling our kids. This is our "first" year, by that I mean the first official year that government mandates kids start in their structured system. In reality kids, and everyone, is constantly learning and unschooling is just fostering and helping that along. Our 3 year old already knows all the letters. It is passion she has and we help her whenever she is interested. This is really how "education" should be. When you take an interest in your kids' education you really see how different each person's learning style can be, which shows you how flawed public education really is.
I can see a big difference between our kids and my nephew who goes to public school. He has such a hard time and gets really frustrated, and I don't blame him.
Really in my opinion I don't see why we still have public education. With all the easy access to information we have these days, such as libraries and the internet, people can easily learn just about anything they want without going to a school building.
If anyone wants to discuss unschooling and homeschool feel free to send a message.
