Hi Everybody!

I had to wait until my third child graduated university, and my fourth child was accepted, and now I am ready to launch this book:

Unschooling To University

Do you have a child that is unmotivated in school? (It's not your child or the teacher's fault!) Are you worried that the school curriculum is not relevant in today's society? (We still do not have mandatory coding lessons) Do you think your child would thrive if you pulled them out, but don't wish to homeschool? (Not everybody wants to!)

Now there is an alternative. Learners can lead their learning! Follow the paths of 25 kids who unschooled and directed their own learning and still entered universities and colleges, with over half in the STEM fields.

Help us get the word out! We are promoting the concept, research and implementation of SELF-DIRECTED EDUCATION (both in and out of school).

We've launched a project on Kickstarter! For as little as $10, (in which you get a copy of the e-book), you can support the costs of launching the book titled Unschooling To University: How to impassion your disengaged learner.

Just go to Kickstarter.com, register as a guest (anonymous), and search for Unschooling To University or Judy Arnall. Thanks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/judyarnall/unschooling-to-university-book-project?ref=discovery

Last day to purchase copy of unschooling to university for $10

I have written a book on an alternative model of education both inside a classroom and outside it. Will you throw $10 at it on Kickstarter to either buy a copy or just get the word out? We need funds to offset the costs of edit, layout and printing the book.

The book is called Unschooling To University

The link for Kickstarter is here: http://kck.st/2lZKrKL

Your donation will be anonymous. Only I know who has donated.

Key points in the book:

• Teachers and parents are saints. They work with children for the best ideals.
• The system is broken and needs to look at other models.
• The success of homeschooling such as low teacher-student ratios, less curriculum, and more relationship-building, should be implemented in the classroom.
• The move to digital delivery and online classes puts kids at risks - the best part of education is the student-teacher relationship.
• The kids already have info at the fingertips in their phones - they need adults to weave context into the info.
• The evidence cited in the book needs to get out there - 25 kids with minimum curriculum and maximum relationships graduated post-secondary schools. Half were in STEM careers. It can be done.
Can you help us get the word out? We want to publish Spring 2018!

Please donate or buy a copy today! Deadline is January 16th!
