About Deschooling

(Update: To find out more about Deschooling, and Tammy’s new book, Zenschooling, visit the new Just Enough blog.)

Read a free excerpt of Tammy’s book, Deschooling Gently: A Step by Step Guide to Fearless Homeschooling. This is the first two chapters, and a complete table of contents. You can buy the book at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Lulu. There is also an e-book version at LuLu. Also available at a store near you.

What is Deschooling?

Deschooling is the time it takes to adjust to learning at home without school. During this time, we come to learn who we are, what learning is for, how we can work together, and all that is possible when we learn in the world around us.

Deschooling is a transition from relying on external measurements of success, to instead finding our own rhythm, meaning, and goals. Deschooling is the process of becoming unleashed from the habitual ideas of what education is, which gives us new tools which are more compatible and appropriate for learning at home with our children.

Deschooling isn’t just for kids. It’s for adults too. It’s a family process. Deschooling means getting it out of our heads that in order to learn, we have to do things like the schools do it. Being deschooled means being free.

Do you have a post about deschooling that you’d like to add here? I’m also looking for guest bloggers to write about the experience of making the transition to homeschooling.
