Our family was featured on 60 Minutes, Australia today.

The show was fantastic and showed Unschooling in a very positive light. The 60 Minutes crew flew to America to spend a day with us. They also showed a few other families in Australia and they were all amazing.
In our introduction, Michael described us by saying, “If there were a global headquarters for this free-range education revolution it would be this unassuming home in the woods of New Hampshire in America’s Northeast.”
Michael Usher also says, when introducing me, “Dayna Martin is the inspiration to me.” He and I spent the day together and he was very open to learning about Unschooling.
The shows that we appear on just keep getting better and better in regards to being honest and balanced when sharing about Unschooling. We just keep showing up and saying, “Yes!” and positive change is happening as a result. Follow your heart and when opportunities come to speak your truth, take them, without fear!
60 Minutes: “School’s Out: It’s the new approach to education that will have you falling off your chair. There’s no school and kids learn reading, writing and arithmetic during the course of everyday life.”
Here is a 60 Minutes, “Extra Minutes” clip:
“When it comes to making friends, can Unschooling kids fit in?”
We received hundreds of messages and comments about our appearance on the show – all positive and supportive!
~Peace & Love, Dayna
