A term coined in the 70's by writer and former school-teacher John Holt. Used to describe the practice of an individual who does not attend school- instead choosing to travel, write, play, run, build things, volunteer, and learn about the world free of grades, subjects, periods and "school hours".
"where most schooling puts the emphasis on what needs to be learned, unschooling puts the emphasis on who is doing the learning."
