5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect chance to decide if you want to homeschool 26 octobre 2015
Par Gwen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a super book if you are starting to think about homeschooling! We homeschooled our now-grown youngest son years ago when it was a really iffy, courageous thing to do (according to those who know nothing). It was the best possible choice for us and he has turned out terrifically and has a GREAT career that he loves! I shudder to think about this particular boy (we have two older) having to deal with regular school (we tried both public and private). He was above regular "gifted" and simply felt so shackled that it was miserable. When we gave him his freedom, he made great use of it. See his personal story in "Real Lives: Eleven Teenagers Who don't Go to School." Same author compiled and edited Real Lives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book gave us the courage to homeschool and we are so THANKFUL for that 12 janvier 2015

The information on homeschooling listed above has changed dramatically in the past few years. Homeschooling has gone mainstream- In the U.S. as many children are homeschooled as there are charter school students (2.5 million) THIS BOOK IS AMAZING.This book gave my family the courage to homeschool and find alternative education models for our kids. We have never regretted this decision for a moment. Read Teenage Liberation and then go online and connect with the homeschooling groups in your town or region. As a former P.T.A. president who became a home-schooling mom three years ago, I can tell you why our children exited public school when they were in fourth and eighth grade: Their innate love of learning was being extinguished by a flawed system dominated by standardized testing and adherence to federally mandated curriculum standards.Now, our children enjoy deep, meaningful, child-focused learning experiences each day. They are happy, stress-free, socialized and well educated.

This review was originally posted at [...]
I read this book when I was nineteen - I'd already finished high school, and had even spent a year at university. That I hadn't read it earlier broke my heart.

Some kids do just fine in school. I don't mean in terms of grades, I mean emotionally. They are ok with sitting still all day every day in an authoritarian environment. They believe adults who say "there is no use complaining, school is a reality, if you can't fit in there is something wrong with you, etc".

I'm sure that these kids exist.

Most of us, however, have recurring nightmares about pop quizzes for the rest of our lives. If we are lucky enough to rediscover our creativity, our freedom of spirit, then we must grieve those things in order to reclaim them in our lives. We regret the years of our youth lost to 'learning', and wonder why we couldn't have spent our precious time doing the important stuff.

No matter your age, this book will be a liberating experience. If you are still in school, or know someone who is, this book will also be a thoroughly helpful guide to taking control of their lives.

This book ought to get ten stars out of five. It is absolutely brilliant, it's honest, it's helpful, it's inspirational.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Give this book to every school kid you know...all they have to lose is boredom. 16 mai 2007

The most essential principles that school children learn from regimented institutionalized schooling are 1.) that they are incapable of teaching and directing themselves 2.) that their time does not belong to them and 3.) that hatred of the unbearable present is a natural part of human existence.

This conditioning follows most of us into our adult lives, as we exchange one domineering form of authority for yet another and never learn intellectual/mental independence. We enter the workplace to sell our time to bosses and fulfill alienating, drone-like work positions, without ever really figuring out what is important to us or fully understanding the vital concept of self-direction.

The spoon-feed cycle spills over into all aspects of our lives, as we look to media talking head "specialists" and "experts" to tell us what we should know and point us to information they deem important.

Worst of all, we are constantly living for the promise of a utopian future that never arrives. School children are waiting for recess, the 3 o'clock bell and summer, while adults are waiting for lunch, the 5 o'lock hour and vacation. Our lives basically become an abstract mosaic of past and future. The present loses all meaning and becomes irrelevant, yet the idea that present misery is necessary for future happiness/comfort has been driven into our psyche since the day we entered the schooling regiment.

Llewellyn passionately encourages kids to cast off these lies and take their minds and futures into their own hands, rather than buying into the empty abstractions and false promises of a institutionalized education system that kills off innate human spontaneous curiosity and love of learning.

I won't reiterate what other reviewers have stated, but my favorite part about this book is Llewellyn's argument that true learning/intellect is born out of lived experience, not regurgitated facts memorized sans meaningful context and later forgotten. She shatters a slew of myths associated with institutionalized schooling, particularly the idea that the school setting provides a child with "friends." (Any meaningful friendships that occur within the age-segregated, institutionalized school environment truly occur accidentally, despite school authorities' best efforts to prevent "unauthorized" interaction!) Or that conventional schooling is a prerequisite for college and a "good job" later on in life. None of these myths bear a spark of truth, but what they are designed to do is prevent children from harnessing their unique potential as individuals and realizing the world of possibility that exists outside of the four walls of One-Size-Fits-All Junior High. And if they starting thinking along these lines, who knows where such radical thinking might lead?

Give this book to every school kid you know. At the very least, it might provoke a shift of consciousness that just might save their intellectual life during their time in the schooling machine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Time-tested & Most Inspirational Perspective on Alternative Education 1 juillet 2012

I started home-educating before there was even a trend--back in the 1980's. Though I am most likely not an example of the demographics that Grace wrote about, I benefited greatly by the freedom that the book availed. Why not lean to a teen's bent and form their educational experience around it? I have seen the benefits of this type of non-traditional approach to learning and it is a valid model for many.
This book is interesting and well written; I highly recommend it. For any book to stick with a person for years like it did with me (I've read tons of books on educating, I'd say it is a valuable voice which should be heard. It is definitely worth your time and it will expand your mind to new possibilities--as a student, parent, or one in the business/calling of education.
