A documentary that explores Unschooling : homeschooling without the artificial structure of formal education. Advice and answers from kids & parents.
People learn by playing, thinking and amazing themselves. They learn while they're laughing at something surprising, and they learn while they're wondering "What the heck is this!?" - Sandra Dodd Unschooling : The Movie is a fun and informative documentary about a radical idea - that the best education for kids can come without any formal education at all. The film features extensive interviews with unschooling parents and children with a special emphasis on the groundbreaking work and ideas of unschooling advocate Sandra Dodd.
The film is a great way to deepen your understanding of unschooling and homeschooling, whether you're brand new to the ideas or an experienced unschooler. It can also serve as a great introduction to the topic for friends or family who can't wrap their heads around why the kids aren't in school. Unschooling : The Movie talks about the problems and conflicts that unschoolers can face and practical, simple ways to solve them.
