This following Nightline video shows the challenge of bringing the radical unschooling philosophy to the mainstream culture. The “news spin” of the video, which tends to portray unschooling as “laissez-faire,” or neglectful, does not accurately represent radical unschooling. In sum, the video shows that there is a long way to go in demonstrating that Radical Unschooling is a wonderful, rich, joyful, family-centered way of living. The benefit of news pieces like this is that it gets people talking and thinking about a different way of living, parenting, and interacting with our children.
