Talk about awesome.
My friend and occasional co-conspirator has gone all homeschooly this year – even unschooly. And he wrote a great big post about it that you should go read now.
It’s about a lot more than school, but here’s a quote…
You don’t have to be an anarchist. Anarchy would suck. But you can look at the rules that you live by. You can look at the standards you’re keeping. You can see if you’re doing what you do because it’s always been done that way, and decide that’s an idiotic way to go through life. You can choose something better.
Tired of being an accountant and want to go to clown college? Fuck it. Be a clown.
Think your kid is suffocating in school? Fuck it. Take him out of school.
Bills killing you and keeping you from sleeping? Fuck it. Stop paying them and see what happens. Would you rather be busted down to a shitty apartment and enjoy your days, or live in an expensive house and hate your life?
Quit that stupid job. Learn that sport that enthralls you. Choose fun over work. Wear that ridiculous hat that you like. Take up ballet no matter what your contractor buddies say. Ask for the date. Commit too early. Do the idiotic. Follow your heart. Try the impossible. Do something crazy.
