Astra Taylor on The Unschooled Life

“Unschooling fundamentally is driven by a profound trust in the human capacity to be curious.” – Astra Taylor; director, producer and writer

If you are planning to watch this lecture, make sure you have enough time: it will take you 1 hour and 15 minutes. (The actual lecture starts at 3:40 min)

It was Austin Kleon’s newsletter on Unschooling that tipped us about the lecture and made us dive into the subject of unschooling because of the following quote:

“My parents eschewed coercion and counted on our curiosity,” Taylor writes. “Unlike the vast majority of our peers, my siblings and I slept late and never knew what day of the week it was. We were never tested, graded, or told to memorize dates, facts, or figures. Failure in intellectual and creative pursuits felt honorable as opposed to humiliating. Adults never lorded their possession of right answers over us, or shamed us when we lacked certain skills, or ranked us against one another.”
