Last week, I wrote a blog post called Are You a Proper Unschooler? I scheduled it to publish while we were away on holiday in Canberra. By the time we arrived home, the post had been online for about 12 hours and it hadn’t had many page views at all.
I thought, “Oh well, not many people are interested in the topic of unschooling experts.” The next day I changed my mind. A steady stream of people arrived to read that post. And after a day or so, it shot into my ‘most popular posts ever’ list. Yes, it seems people are interested in such questions as: Is there such a person as an unschooling expert?
I’m hoping people are also interested in radical unschooling and, in particular, the question: Can you still adopt the label ‘radical unschooler’ if your family uses a chore roster? I bet practically everyone will answer this question with a resounding, “No!” They’ll say, “Don’t be silly, Sue! You don’t understand radical unschooling at all.” Despite anticipating this reaction, I decided to argue the case for a radical chore roster, in this week’s podcast. I guess I can cope with the negative opinions if I have to!
Does any of this sound interesting? Will you listen to my podcast? I hope so!
