Deschool By Breaking Away From What You Know

André Gide said, “One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”

To find one’s own educational and family philosphy (and practice), it’s important to break away, and do nothing that looks like or feels like school for a while.

Lose sight of the shore long enough to discover the new lands of homeschooling. Hanging onto the shore of school only makes the transition more difficult and it takes longer.

Plus, it’s hard to appreciate what homeschooling has to offer when one’s heart or head is still hanging on to school.
