What is "Life Learning"? - We have used the term "life learning" for many decades to describe the form of homeschooling that trusts and respects children, and that avoids the trappings of school.

"When [John Holt's publication] Growing Without Schooling stopped publication [in 2001], Life Learning Magazine became the leading journal of the unschooling movement. The magazine is packed with well-written articles about the philosophy and practice of unschooling."  ~ Dr. Peter Gray, Freedom to Learn blog, Psychology Today
