Unschooling vs Homeschooling
Jamaican Akilah Richards hosts Fare of the Free Child, a lifestyle and parenting podcast about the connection between liberation, learning, and parenting, particularly among BIPOC (Black Indigenous, People of Color) communities.
In this episode, Akilah gives her definition of unschooling and explains the difference between unschooling and homeschooling. Akilah also shares her journey from the traditional Caribbean perspective on school to Unschooling & Self-Directed Education. We also discuss school wounds and my openness to explore self-directed education as an option for my son.
