Why I Love My 'School'

Why I Love My 'School,' Greg King, BRAT
Homeschooling, or 'unschooling', as some call it, is on the upswing. In a recent issue of BRAT, a Louisville, Kentucky-based youth webzine, unschooler Greg King tells why he chooses to direct his own education. 'There are no nagging teachers or boring classes in my school day. Nobody brainwashes me in some dungeon-looking room with boring lectures and skewed history books. The only school I attend is the one I create for myself.' A typical 'school' day for King includes helping run an independent bookstore, attending city council meetings, studying karate and computer programming, practicing with his band, reading books and writing in his journal. King answers some frequently asked questions about unschooling, like how to get a diploma, make friends and stay motivated to study, and provides resources for kids who want to find out how to unschool themselves. -- LU
