Interesting byways

What matters is that they are bright, happy, interesting, accomplished, engaged and engaging. Unschooling doesn't only work for kids of "above-average intelligence," or kids whose parents are teachers, or kids who can recite the alphabet while twirling a baton, or any other limiting factor.

Unschooling works because the unschooled individual has the time and support to follow the interesting byways that lead to real learning.

  1. Wow! That potato is amazing. How long was it lost for? Any idea? I've never seen anything like it!

  2. It could have been months. We have stacking plastic racks in the kitchen. The bottom one has potatoes and onions. The next one up is where people stuff plastic bags, so it was in there, among the plastic grocery bags. I planted it in a pot but I think I might've put it in upside down. It is growing, though. :-)
