About Us

  • The Life Without School Blog is an on-line publication and blogging community. We homeschool. We unschool. We live our lives without school. For some, life without school begins as a conscientious choice that is whole-heartedly embraced. For others, it begins as a quest for second chances and new opportunity.... Read more about us.

About Our Blogs

  • We support life without school, diversity of perspective, choice, the family and the child. No one blog, not even this LWOS blog, can possibly represent the opinions and lives of all who live life without school. Each blog does, however, in some small way represent one life, one family, once voice, one lifestyle out of many who choose to live life without school.

On Questions

  • The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change. -Richard Bach

Questions for Us

  • What are ways you prepare your children to survive in our society economically? How are you sure your children are learning enough; what about holes in your child's education? Read more Questions for Us.

On Perspectives

  • A perspective does not tell me what is right for you. A persective shares a view into what is possibly right for me. No one perspective should hold a human being, especially a child, prisoner to its expectations.

What a fascinating life! I have wanted to live on a boat for a long time...but what would we do with the horses? Guess that's one fantasy to live out on vacation! I love real-world learning, too, kids retain so much more of what they learn when it's all placed in context. Great post!

You could have named this post "Socialization in the school of the world." Connecting actual people with regions of the world; connecting regions with languages, geography, and customs; and at the same time connecting with people human to human--all of this equals global socialization IMO. My family doesn't live in a marina, but the careers my husband and I have chosen bring us into contact with people from all over the world and all walks of life--our children benefit greatly. Sometimes the most fleeting of meetings can make a huge impact and a life-long connection. Your kids are going to have actual people connections all around the world, not just digital connections--dude, you guys are building the ultimate world-wide web!

I homeschooled my daughter from 7th through 12th grade. These are lessons about geography that your children will always remember.

    From the Quote Vault:

    The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.~John F. Kennedy

Editor's Corner

  • It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. ~Alan Cohen
