Educating with Respect: Unschooling and Self-Directed Learning

Saturday March 23 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


What is the goal of education? Who decides what’s important to learn or not? Martha Sharpe has been exploring alternative education for years to find what works for her family. Join her as we talk about the approach that flipped her understanding of education upside-down.

In this series, Parenting Unlocked: Simplifying the Impossible, each month is a new chance to hop in and discuss key challenges that parents face in today’s world.

To prepare for this discussion, think about the following questions:

  • How were you educated and what were the pros and cons to this approach?
  • What would you have pursued more deeply if you had been allowed to follow your interests?
  • How does today’s world differ from the world you were raised in and how can schooling approaches adapt to that?
  • What is the purpose of education and what is the measure of a successful educational approach?
