So you can imagine my surprise when the cover of the magazine teased: "Special Report: Take Your Kids Out of Schools. Why Adventure is the Future of Education."
What???!!! A magazine that has nothing to do with education has a feature article about, not only education, but homeschooling!
(A habitat made by my daughter & her cousins. A frog, lizard, huge ant, & beetle are all living together in that jar!)
The article presented a reasonably researched, fair account of what is popularly known as Unschooling. Basically, the family works as a team to do the necessary tasks required at their home, encourages their boys to learn through exploring in the woods, through a homeschool group, and through general living while monitoring their boys' reading and math abilities.
I recommend that you hop over to Outside's website to read the article. It's a very nice representation of why some families choose to homeschool and presents a positive message about the kids who are homeschooled.
