Long-Term Results of Unschooling

Dear Reader,

An article by Peter Gray was recently brought to my attention. I read his book Free to Learn a while back and for the most part really enjoyed it. I like a lot of what he has to say though I am not an unschooler myself. In this article in Psychology Today, Gray presents the results of a study he has done on the long-term effects of unschooling. They are mostly positive and encouraging, even relative to other methods of homeschooling, though he admits that the study itself probably has some selection flaws. Nonetheless it is well worth the read and does make me want to give my children more freedom in how they learn though we are certainly not going all the way to the unschooling end of the spectrum.
