Read full description of the books:
Loved this book so much. . . that one day I got off the school bus, walked past the school house, and NEVER went back. Spent my time at the library. learning what I wanted .. so much that they gave me a job. Lol. I wrote the Author. Became her friend. .and worked at her Not Back To School Camp in Oregon State. A big deal and trip for a poor Kentucky boy. I feel I owe a lot to this book, the love of learning it inspires, the truth it speaks, and the community it creates . . . despite the odds.
I still have friends from that camp.
Outlaw Education. . . How Cool . .How Real. No profession has changed so little as the way we choose to educate ourselves. Compulsive - Memorization-style education is not for everyone. Einstein failed Math! ! ! Some of the great Japanese master poets could not spell correctly! It's not about being a computer andriod of memory or an intellectual elitist. Our culture so often misses the point of education. . . and that is to foster a true Love of Learning and Beautifully Inspired Minds. Thank You Grace! . .and Unschoolers everywhere! Keep the Truth! and make Beautiful Lives Stretching across the land like wildflowers dancing in the wind/sunshine. <3
