We are (mercifully) yet to see Dr. Phil with his thoughts on unschooling on this side of the pond but you can get an idea from his after-show ramblings here.
Some things Dr. Phil should know (yawn):
*Unschooled teens don't miss out on socialisation.
*Many of them do go on to college, where the environment is more personalised.
*Unschooling parents are not the hardest working parents anywhere
unless they choose to be. Parents who have done school and unschooling report that school is just as hard, if not more so.
Andrea has the full story.
