About

This blog is written and curated by Meredith Collins.

When I’m not posting here, I’m usually at work on a book about shifting the educational paradigm to allow kids’ lives to be shaped by individual potential and capacity (rather than only by the priorities of traditional academic ideology).

The blog is not about a way to do school or teaching better.  It’s about what we can do for each child until school gets better – or in case it never does – so that every one thrives no matter what or when. And so that we can all benefit from the tremendous and as yet untapped potential in each one.

  1. WOW! What an inspiring blog to stumble across..

    I am a homeschooling mother in South Africa teaching my daughter, her two nieces and a child who has recently quit ‘traditional’school to join us. It has shocked me how much unschooling was needed to peel away the layers that being at school has imposed on her. Six weeks after starting she is a different child compared to the rebellious, bored and low self esteemed child she was. She has taken ownership of her learning as opposed to being told what to learn and this has caused such a transformation in her!

    I would love a copy of your book when you are done! Best of luck with it and blessings from across the big blue…
