About this talk

The Future of Everyone's Education Depends on the Success of Homeschoolers and Unschoolers

Together, "homeschooling and unschooling" is driving the first education reform movement that does not actually require education to reform. This is critical, because no monopoly ever reformed itself. Clark Aldrich, author of five-ish books including Unschoolng Rules, will discuss the "State of Education Today" through the unique lens of unschooling philosophies, to reveal surprising progress, huge barriers, and incredible opportunities for everyone.
