  • Details

    "I am convinced that most families who try home schooling begin as we did and go through this same experience. When boredom sets in, the children begin to misbehave and the parents feel frustrated. If the parents see that the problem is the "classroom school" and change their approach, they will develop a successful home school. But if they are determined to follow their structured plan, they will probably find themselves in constant power struggles (as the public schools always do) and will either continue in a tension-filled, unhappy situation or will pronounce home school a failure and return their children to the public school. "It is the purpose of this little book to help parents move more easily through this struggle which, for lack of better terms, we call the struggle between "structure" and "non-structure." More correctly it is the struggle between a narrow view of education as a packageable/deliverable commodity set into a restrictive, or "structured" five-and-a-half hour day, and a greater vision of life as an educational opportunity/adventure which we organize, or "structure" around our purpose and goals."
