Welcome to the site about John Holt, a teacher and writer who advocated more humane classrooms and then, when he sensed such school reform was not really wanted by most people, became one of the founders of the homeschooling movement, which Holt originally called "unschooling." Unschooling—learning that doesn't look like school or happen at home—is an effective way to work with, not on, young children and teenagers to help them learn.
Unschooling is also documented in the pages of the magazine Holt founded, Growing Without Schooling (GWS), as are articles, audio, and video recordings of Holt and other pioneers of learning without schooling.

HOW TO REPORT UNSCHOOLING TO SCHOOL OFFICIALS
A new booklet by Patrick Farenga
Unschooling doesn't produce conventional educational outputs, so if you need to submit a periodic evaluation this book shows you how to explain your children's growth in more depth to readers who do not understand unschooling.
