Emergent Learning and Connecting with the Field

My friend Chris Corrigan shares some of his family's experience with unschooling in emergent learning and connecting with the field. The unschooling label scares many people, even more so than the homeschooling label. But what the Corrigans are doing isn't scary at all -- it's a rich, varied, caring approach to learning that really rings true for me.
"So this is what my kids continue to teach me. Create a caring and supportive environment, live by the principle that whenever it starts is the right time, and watch as learning happens."
