"Radical Unschooling" is a progressive parenting philosophy, which includes children learning at home. It is different from homeschooling in that children are not forced to follow curriculum lessons and tests. Radical Unschooling philosophy focuses on trust of a child's innate ability to learn without coercion and invites children to explore their passions. The parent's role is to facilitate their interests and curiosity. The book focuses also on the evolutionary aspect of parenting and human consciousness. We are parenting and educating our children today to succeed in a joyful, productive life by following their passions, not someone else's agenda.

From the Inside Flap:

“In my heart of hearts, I've always been a radical unschooler. There is no doubt in my mind that our families and our global community would be far healthier if this approach were embraced.” Christiane Northrup, M.D., Author of The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House 2008), The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, revised 2006), Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom (Bantam, revised 2006), and Mother-Daughter Wisdom (Bantam 2005) “Full of brilliant common sense! Mrs. Martin takes us behind the curtain to see in rich detail what alternative education really looks like when it bestows upon its subjects the freedom to choose. Every parent who feels compelled to give their kids into the care of total strangers should read this book.” --John Taylor Gatto, Author: Dumbing Us Down And Weapons of Mass Instruction
