45: How Registered Homeschoolers Can Unschool

October 5, 2015

In this week's episode, 

  • I talk about how we unschool even though our children are legally required to follow the school syllabus.
  • I describe a method for recording unschooling in an impressive way
  • I share how I translate natural learning into the necessary educational language for registration purposes
  • and how I work out what the official documents such as the school syllabus actually mean
  • I discuss what we can do if a child refuses to learn something that's required by the educational authorities
  • I offer a few positives (!) of homeschool registration
  • and also some examples of how I record unschool learning experiences
I use the words 'syllabus' and 'curriculum' interchangeably and wrongly, I'm sure! (I think you'll still get the idea.)
I also made a mistake about the required hours of schooling. My number was too low.
I can't go back and fix up my mistakes: I had to work quickly on a borrowed computer and unfortunately I've run out of time. Sorry!
