What is Unschooling? (video)

Dayna Martin introduces unschooling, the idea of letting children direct their own learning, choosing their own methods, subjects and teachers.  Children are self-motivated to learn, and seek out the knowledge they need to operate in the world.  They do not need to be moulded, given artificial incentives or implicit threats by parents, or forced to learn subjects when they do not want to.  Forcing them to go to school against their wishes hampers their educational and social development, and often leaves them with a lifelong hatred of learning.
