Homeschooling with Gentleness: A Catholic Discovers Unschooling
Can a Catholic in good conscience unschool? Suzie Andres ably answers this question in the second edition of this unschooling classic-- and the answer is yes! Suzie Andres describes her search for the perfect educational methods for her children which led her to unschooling: "It has taken years of trial and error, along with the grace of God, for us to find the homeschooling approach that fits our family best. I have enjoyed writing about our experience in the hope of helping others to discern how God is leading them." This approach to education is not only gentle but filled with a trust in God and the natural tendency for learning that He has placed in us all. From the foreword by Ralph McInerny: "You will find here no brief against the compulsory schools. Rather homeschooling is seen as the natural way, the basic way, in which children can be taught. Schools of the usual sort are an afterthought. Doubtless some of them still do a tolerable job. Suzie Andres is far more interested in putting before the reader the positive, attractive, practical, fulfilling notion of homeschooling."
