No Books, No Classes, No Problem: These Students Teach Themselves
- To most parents, it sounds like a scene from a John Hughes movie or maybe The Simpsons: Students take over a school, dismiss the teacher, and promptly eliminate tests, quizzes, and rote instruction. They then decide what courses to study—or not—and teach and learn from one another.
- They include play as a part of the new curriculum. What some might consider an education apocalypse is the reality in one Massachusetts high school. It’s also the driving concept behind a movement of parents and educators who have rejected the conventional apple-for-the-teacher model of education and embraced “unschooling” as the ideal way for children to learn.

Re: Better Schooling (Unschooling even Better than Homeschooling)
« Reply #50 on: November 07, 2014, 02:00:59 am »

Actually, Unschooling refers to self-directed learning, which usually means no conventional schooling or school attendance. Parent-directed learning is inevitable for the first few years of life and a whole lot can be learned at that time. That's when speech is learned. It's when writing and math can also be learned most naturally and easily. See Glenn Doman's books and the IAHP. Gradually, kids should be given opportunity to have increasing control of their own learning, but should also be encouraged to consult with others to learn about what might be worth their learning.

[It's a pleasure providing the links when people actually use them.]

Statist science and education have become increasingly corrupt, leading to fear mongering for profit, like the global warming scare, and many other false beliefs parading as facts.

Charles Chandler has the most thorough model for formation of galaxies, stars, planets etc at:
http://qdl.scs-inc.us/2ndParty/Pages/6031.html

Topics include:

Accretion
Galaxies
Black Holes
Pulsars
Quasars
Nebulae
The Sun
Star Types
The Planets

His findings are very surprising, and include consideration of electric and magnetic forces, which actually outweigh the effects of gravity in most cases.

He often discusses science topics on this forum:

Ancient Nuclear bombs on Mars?

No, Not Nuclear Bombs, but Impacts. Impacts produce thermonuclear explosions.

Impacts Fallout?
Charles, are there enough questions for you yet? In case not, here's another. In the "Nuclear bombs on mars" thread, the referenced article about possible former civilization on Mars says products of nuclear explosions are found on Mars: Xenon-129 in the atmosphere and uranium and thorium on the surface. Since you consider most craters to have formed by thermonuclear explosion, do you think those products could have formed from impacts?

Postby CharlesChandler » Sat Nov 29, 2014 1:15 am
Yes -- any decent-sized meteor impacting at 30 km/s should generate the temperatures and pressures necessary for a nuclear explosion, so there is no need for any stupid life forms to be nuking each other in order to get those heavy elements.

From Kanarev
(Канарев Ф. М.)
Best Regards, Prof. Kanarev

15.12.2014. To Mr. Josip Slisko,
Autonomous University of Puebla, Puebla, Mexico.

[Links are in Russian. For English versions, see https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.micro-world.su%2F+and&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 ]

Dear Mr. Josip Slisko, Thanks for attention to scientific publications on my personal scientific site http://www.micro-world.su/ Every days its visit about 400 readers from the different countries of the world. It is a pity, but you do not know till now that there is more than half of scientific information in school and university textbooks on the physicist and to chemistry is deeply erroneous in all camps of the world.

Russia – the first country in which reliability of existing physical and chemical knowledge already is studied more than 40 years. Result: it is established that in heads of academicians of all countries and in heads of winners of all scientific awards, including Nobel Prize, more than 70 % of deeply erroneous theoretical physical and chemical knowledge. Nature laws are uniform, and the person has divided them into physical and chemical laws, and has lost touch between them. I have understood it more 40 years ago and have started to search for the reasons of occurrence of scientific errors and - to correct them.

Result: my personal scientific site http://www.micro-world.su/ is in the lead by quantity of the scientists visiting it. Russia the first country in the world already has absolutely new textbooks:

1. Kanaryov F.M The general physics.http://www.micro-world.su/index.php/2013-09-12-04-46-36/1177-2014-10-29-17-44-18

The textbook the First law of Dynamics of Newton. New set of laws of movement of material points and bodies is named «MECHANODINAMICS». The new concept helps to distinguish laws of mechanical movementof firm bodies from laws of Hydrodynamics, Aerodynamics, Thermodynamics.In the textbook examples of the decision of mechanical problems which had no decisions in Newton's dynamics are presented.

4. Kanaryov F.M.Examination of fundamental sciences. The textbook on interdisciplinary knowledge.http://www.micro-world.su/index.php/2013-09-12-04-46-36/1162-2014-08-26-13-42-13

Could Unschools Be the Answer to High-Stakes, High-Stress Education?
By Sarah Anne Perry

First, see this video maybe: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=7&ved=0CDcQjBAwBg&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freedomtogrowunschool.com%2Fted-talk%2F&ei=qBjZVKaaL4q5ggSO5IHICg&usg=AFQjCNGxTBPJsWcaZWx-jNpAXYT1FYrXbw&sig2=hokN28ESK98h-N-0zD_DOw&bvm=bv.85464276,d.eXY&cad=rja

Freedom to Grow Unschool [in Hull, GA] cannot call itself a school. [ http://www.freedomtogrowunschool.com/ ]

Officially, it’s a “learning center for homeschoolers,” director Lora Smothers says, when people ask if it’s accredited. “The answer is no. We’re just a business offering educational services to families of homeschoolers.”

But semantics don’t keep people away. “It gives the power back to the parents to be the final say in their kids’ education,” Smothers says. “I think that’s my favorite part of what I do—just reminding parents that they know what’s best for their kids. ‘Cause a lot of them are so frustrated with how the public school system is working now.”

“Unschool” can mean a lot of things. “Unschooling is actually a worldwide movement of people who have decided to let their kids take the lead in their education,” Smothers says. “There’s a broad range of what that can look like.”

Everyone has an opinion about "Our Failing Schools"—whether they're really failing or not. Some educators have found solutions by just abandoning traditional ideas about education. Whether your kids want to fidget freely, learn art from robots or just not do the school thing at all, there is probably something for them. (If you can afford it—tuition at these schools is in the $5,000–$7,000 neighborhood, though Athens Montessori School offers scholarships, and Freedom to Grow has ambitions to become more accessible through grants and scholarships.)

Freedom to Grow

Whereas some unschools are completely hands-off, and others are closer to curriculum-based home-schooling, Freedom to Grow falls somewhere in the middle.

The school (or not) began in 2010 with nine students under founder Terri Cole-Smith. Smothers taught neuroscience on Fridays as a graduate intern before becoming director in 2012. The staff now consists of Smothers, a child-safety advisor and two other mentors.

“We decided the word ‘teacher’ wasn’t exactly functional for us, because we do so much learning from the kids, and we function as playmates and mentors and coaches a lot of times,” Smothers says.

The Freedom to Grow philosophy is based on the assumption that children are self-motivated and have ideas worth pursuing. The learning center serves about 20 students, ages 5–12, but doesn’t acknowledge grade levels. Instead, learning happens in one large group. Certain times of the day are designated for the study of specific topics, like math or reading, but the kids also spend time working on independent and group projects they have chosen.

“I think it really helps kids who either would be considered behind in a certain area or who excel not to feel so weird,” Smothers says. “We acknowledge that everybody has different gifts and that we’re all in different stages. I think it removes a lot of the stigma kids experience in school.”

School only happens during school hours. “One of our biggest selling points is that we don’t do tests or grades or homework,” Smothers says. “Which is a big deal to a lot of families who come and are just tired of the stress, of every evening trying to force the kids to do their homework, and they don’t wanna do it, and it takes up all their time. When families come, they say, ‘Oh, we have our evenings back. We have our weekends back.'”

Smothers doesn’t see traditional schooling as some great evil. “I think that the idea of public education is necessary,” she says. “I think it’s core to our country’s values, that everyone has the right to an education no matter where you come from. But in the execution of that plan, things get really difficult.”

For one thing, schools are too big and often lack resources. “It isn’t really possible to create the individualized experience that each kid needs,” she says. “And that’s no fault of any teacher or administrator. I think there are a lot of people in school who have really high expectations of kids, but they can’t do everything that they would want to do to help kids reach those goals.”

The other problem, she says, is the national emphasis on standardized testing. “The fact that there’s so much money wrapped in the testing, to the point where administrators, and then teachers, and then their parapros, and then the students all feel the pressure of it,” she says. “I think that pressure and that stress is totally antithetical to creativity and taking risks and just being yourself, a lot of the time.”
