The information we gather for this project will be used for various academic purposes, such as publications in books and journals along with professional presentations.

The subject population for this study is unschooling families - parent(s)/guardian(s) 18 years or older, either biologically male or female, who self identify as progressive and engaged in homeschooling (often termed “unschooling”).
The following definition of unschooling will be the criteria for participation:
Families which engage in homeschooling their children in such a way that allows the student some self-direction on what is studied, when, and how. Families that follow a form of homeschooling that is self-directed in nature and seeks to avoid reproducing the learning structures of school in the home.
