Can unschoolers go to college and university? Yes! They absolutely can if they want to. We have just attended our children’s fourth university convocation and now we have a Masters in the family. Our five children unschooled 8-12 years and received an excellent education by pursuing their interests, instead of attending institutional classroom schooling. Burnout, bullying, homework and lack of motivation is never a problem when children self-direct their primary and secondary education. Our family were unlimiters to screen time and we enjoyed all forms of learning whether it came from travel, textbooks, jobs, internet, volunteering, video games and play. Unschooling (self-directed education) is a fantastic way to get an education because learning is everywhere, everyplace and anytime. A child who loves to learn freely will have no boundaries to their education.
