The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education

Lowry House, 1998 - 435 pagina's
Written by a former English teacher, this personable, irreverent, practical, inspiring, funny, and information-packed cult classic is the only complete guide to homeschooling for teenagers. It covers everything from why to consider self-directed education, to convincing parents that quitting school is a marvelous idea, to getting a social life without proms, to designing a tailor-made educational extravaganza (curriculum), to finding mentors, apprenticeships, and meaningful volunteer positions. Vivid examples from the lives of dozens of unschooled teenagers illustrate the authors suggestions. Fans of the Handbook include not only teenagers but many college students, parents, teachers, and school counselors.
