A little bit about home educating ...
We have been home educating for 5 years now (wow! it has gone fast) and labelling 'what we do' in terms of homeschooling or unschooling becomes increasingly difficult as our older children become young adults, and our baby comes in to being 'school aged'.
Our philosophy is simply freedom of education.
As educators (me a social work, university tutor, and my husband, a qualified youth worker and mentor) we believe that high literacy, the ability to think critically and challenge what we see, hear and read is front and centre of what education should be. Most of the time, for us, that means being here 24/7 to facilitate our children in learning as much as they can about the world, their place in it, and how they want to live their lives. But we are all educators. We all have something valuable to contribute to the world, and we would love to hear about how you think, and the big dreams that you are working on in your lives too...
