Unschooling on 60 Minutes!

Our family was featured on 60 Minutes, Australia!

The show was fantastic and showed Unschooling in a very positive light. The 60 Minutes crew flew to America to spend a day with us. They also showed a few other families in Australia and they were all amazing.
In our introduction, Michael described us by saying, “If there were a global headquarters for this free-range education revolution it would be this unassuming home in the woods of New Hampshire in America’s Northeast.”
Michael Usher also says, when introducing me, “Dayna Martin is the inspiration to me.” He and I spent the day together and he was very open to learning about Unschooling.
The shows that we appear on just keep getting better and better in regards to being honest and balanced when sharing about Unschooling. We just keep showing up and saying, “Yes!” and positive change is happening as a result. Follow your heart and when opportunities come to speak your truth, take them, without fear!

Here is one of the ads for the show, featuring Orion and Ivy!

We received a nice Thank-you note from the Network for our appearance on the show. It was a fabulous experience and we are grateful for the opportunity to share about our unique and joyful lives!

Fantastic article! A great number of students are dejected at school.

They'll lose interest in everything on the planet because they are so depressed.

I honestly want it to be simpler for teenagers to choose to avoid attending school, instead of being legally required to attend.
They would be a lot happier if they received significantly more

The total amount of agony these people endure only for a diploma is definitely ludicrous.

Here is my blog school sucks
