More on Notschool

...from Al, Gill's 18 year old son, and someone who should know:

"Having been a child that attempted and summarily rejected several methods of structured education, and having known many other such children, I tend to be deeply skeptical of products that claim to provide a successful alternative to children that are disengaged from 'classroom learning' - Such children tend to reject structured education in general, not just the most orthodox method of structured education that happens to exist (school.) This means that offering a 'toned down' alternative of a student/teacher relationship invariably tends to fail for these children, or at least be far less efficient than straight autodidactism."
