In episode 80, I am going to offer you a definition for unschooling, so you can invite people in your life to listen to episode 80. I was inspired by the bell hooks quote about how our imaginations have been colonized, and I want to talk about ways to free ourselves from a colonized imagination. Beginning 8 minutes and 29 seconds into this episode, you’ll get a definition, both a short one, and a more detailed one, about what unschooling is and and what it means.
But I’m also going to offer you, not give you, the understanding of unschooling as I see it. Not for you to see it as I see it, but so you that you can remember that you MUST figure out your own understanding of it, and that you never have to feel like you want to unschool, but don’t know where to start, not for long. You NEVER need to feel that way for long, because just deciding is the starting point, and the research and in-person connections you make, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, your child, if you are consistently deciding to listen to them, will help you design what unschooling is and what it means for your family. #BIPOCinSDE
