    Default Unschooled bubhubbers?

    Just come across a family that unschools. It's new to me. Initially I'm skeptical so i was just wondering if anyone here has been raised in an unschooled environment themselves ?

    Default Unschooled bubhubbers?

    I don't know anyone that has been unschooled but remember watching a segment on ACA / TT a few years ago where a family was unschooled and they were illiterate and really struggled with getting work. I think only 1 of the 4 adult boys actually had a job. From my understanding, it really is not appropriate for anyone wanting to enter main****** society.

    I'm interested to hear if anyone has direct experience with it.

    A friend of mine 'unschools'. Her children are very bright, happy and sociable kids. They are moderated from the Department like other homeschooled children and are doing well.

    I am personally against unschooling but I wouldn't trust aca to report fairly. They probably chose the biggest dregs of society to show to Australia.

    Not homeschool, i mean no government involvement at all or any sort of moderation. Off the grid 100%. I was just wondering how adults turn out who have been raised in this environment, so was wondering if any bubhub ppl were raised like this.

    I thought all children over 6 years old had to be enrolled in some form of education in Australia. How do you meet the legal obligations if you do no schooling whatsoever? Just curious.
