There's a new article and video on unschooling in the local paper, here in Central Massachusetts. My husband is a videographer (& more) for the paper, and when we saw how often the media seemed to get it wrong with Unschooling, I suggested that HE do a video of his own. So he worked with the then-editor of MassMoms and the two of them (with my help) wrote an article to go with the video. Voila! Here it is:

I would like to hear your feedback on it! :-) I think they did a good job.

That was a fantastic video. Of all the ones I've seen lately on unschooling I think it was the best explanation for people who may be unfamiliar with the concept. And kudos to you for getting Peter Gray on there!

I am planning to unschool DD and have been doing a lot of research and this is by far the best video I have seen yet! All the others were made by non unschoolish people who seemed to put their own ideals into the video just by the way it was edited and put together. Like they were ridiculing the family for their choice, even if it was unintentionally!
This was well made and very informative!

Wonderful! I love that Peter Gray was interviewed too and that there was a link to this blog. This is definitely one of the best pieces I've seen on unschooling, good job and thanks for sharing!!!
