[To the frequently voiced complaint that the word "unschooling" seems negative, this was written years ago and has not been bested:]
"Lots of people make this point, but I never see the negation as negative in a value-judgment sense when I use the word--to me unschooling is as positive as unchaining, unbinding, unleashing, unfolding, unfurling, unlimiting...
"All mean freedom and growth and vast possibilities to me."
And that, my friends, is a good part of the reason why I happily say unschooling. To me, "school" is a negative word. By unschooling myself, I'm setting myself free from the rigid constraints of schooling in all it's forms!
