De-institutionalizing learning
Lately I have been working on launching the weekly blog feature for Alternatives To, a comprehensive online resource for families seeking alternatives to institutionalized learning.

Last week, Peter Gray kicked-off the blog with a post on how "Children Teach Themselves To Read," and this week Jan Hunt of the Natural Child Project posted about "10 Tips for New Unschooling Parents." I hope you will head over to the Alternatives To blog to check out these excellent posts and look for more in the coming weeks!

If you are a writer, blogger, parent, student or other concerned individual who believes that real learning happens when we move away from institutions and toward self-determination, we would love to consider you for a blog feature on Alternatives To  Give me a shout if you're interested by clicking on my profile link in the sidebar.

Together, we can transform -- not reform -- education.

"What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook." 
- Henry David Thoreau
