“非学校教育”有两个不同含义。一方面越来越多地用来描述与学校不同的教育方法,主要是指不过多依赖于教科书或是久坐于书桌前;另一方面,在创造这个术语的的人——教育家、作者和家庭教育介导者约翰•霍特(John Holt)——的设想中,“非学校教育”指的是特殊类型的教育,以兴趣为基础,父母并非高高在上指导孩子的教育,而是帮助孩子探索他(她)的兴趣。“非学校教育”不是指孩子没有受教育,而是指不在学校里受训(school也有训练和控制的含义),或者用严格的学校式方法进行教育。

The term "unschooling" has two distinct meanings. On one hand, it is increasingly used to describe methods of education that do not resemble schools, primarily indicating a lack of heavy reliance on textbooks or time spent at desks. In contrast, "unschooling" as envisioned by educator, author, and home education advocate John Holt, who coined the term, [1] refers to a specific type of interest based education in which the parents do not authoritatively direct the child's education, but instead aid the child in exploring his or her interests. "Unschooling" does not indicate that the child is not being educated, but that the child is not being "schooled", or educated in a rigid school-type manner.


Holt asserted that children learn through the experiences of life, and he encouraged parents to live their lives with their child. Also known as interest-led or child-led learning, unschooling attempts to follow opportunities as they arise in real life, through which a child will learn without coercion. An unschooled child may utilize texts or classroom instruction, but these are not considered central to education. Holt asserted that there is no specific body of knowledge that is, or should be, required of a child.


"Unschooling" should not be confused with "deschooling," which may be used to indicate an anti-"institutional school" philosophy, or a period or form of deprogramming for children or parents who have previously been schooled.

Home education


Unschooling is generally considered to be a form of home education, which is simply the education of children at home rather than in a school. Home education is often considered to be synonymous with homeschooling, but some have argued that the latter term implies the re-creation of school in the context of the home, which they believe is philosophically at odds with unschooling.


Unschooling contrasts with other forms of home education in that the student's education is not directed by a teacher and curriculum. Although unschooling students may choose to make use of teachers or curricula, they are ultimately in control of their own education.[2] Students choose how, when, why, and what they pursue. Parents who unschool their children act as "facilitators," providing a wide range of resources, helping their children access, navigate, and make sense of the world, and aiding them in *** and implementing goals and plans for both the distant and immediate future. Unschooling expands from children's natural curiosity as an extension of their interests, concerns, needs, goals, and plans.


Conventional education


Unschoolers commonly believe that curiosity is innate and that children want to learn that which is necessary for them to become competent adults. Some argue that institutionalizing children in what they term a "one size fits all" or "factory model" school is an inefficient use of their time because it requires every child to learn specific subject matter in a particular manner, at a particular pace, and at a particular time regardless of that individual's present or future needs, interests, goals, or any pre-existing knowledge he or she might have about the topic.


Many unschoolers also believe that opportunities for valuable hands-on, community based, spontaneous, and real-world experiences are missed when educational opportunities are largely limited to those which can occur physically inside of a school building.


Additionally, some unschoolers agree with John Holt when he says that "...the anxiety children feel at constantly being tested, their fear of failure, punishment, and disgrace, severely reduces their ability both to perceive and to remember, and drives them away from the material being studied into strategies for fooling teachers into thinking they know what they really don't know." Proponents assert that individualized, child-led learning is more efficient and respectful of children's time, takes advantage of their interests, and allows deeper exploration of subjects than what is possible in conventional education.

Essential body of knowledge

非学校教育者时常争辩,学习任何特定的科目,都不如学习如何学习重要。他们称亚历克伯恩(Alec Bourne)说过,“脑子里可能储存了上百万件事实,但仍然一无所知”,用霍特的话来说:

Unschoolers often contest that learning any specific subject is less important than learning how to learn. They assert, in the words of Alec Bourne, "It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated", and in the words of Holt:


Since we can’t know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.


This ability to learn on their own makes it more likely that later, when these children are adults, they can continue to learn what they need to know to meet newly emerging needs, interests, and goals. They can return to any subject that they feel was not sufficiently covered or learn a completely new subject.


Many unschoolers disagree that there is a particular body of knowledge that every person, regardless of the life they lead, needs to possess. They suggest that there are countless subjects worth studying, more than anyone could learn within a single lifetime. Since it would be impossible for a child to learn everything, somebody must decide what subjects they are to explore. Unschoolers argue that "Children... if they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

The role of parents


The child-directed nature of unschooling does not mean that unschooling parents will not provide their children with guidance and advice, or that they will refrain from sharing things that they find fascinating or illuminating with them. These parents generally believe that as adults, they have more experience with the world and greater access to it. They believe in the importance of using this to aid their children in accessing, navigating, and *** sense of the world. Common parental activities include sharing interesting books, articles, and activities with their children, helping them find knowledgeable people to explore an interest with (anyone from physics professors to automotive mechanics), and helping them set goals and figure out what they need to do to meet their goals. Unschooling’s interest-based nature does not mean that it is a "hands off" approach to education; parents tend to be quite involved, especially with younger children (older children, unless they are new to unschooling, will often need much less help finding resources and *** and carrying out plans).



Concerns about socialization are often a factor in the decision to unschool. Many unschoolers believe that the conditions common in conventional schools, like age segregation, a low ratio of adults to children, a lack of contact with the community, and a lack of people in professions other than teaching or school administration create an unhealthy social environment.[3] They feel that their children benefit from coming in contact with people of diverse ages and backgrounds in a variety of contexts. They also feel that their children benefit from having some ability to influence what people they encounter, and in what contexts they encounter them. Unschoolers cite studies which report that home educated students tend to be more mature than their schooled peers,[4][5][6] and some believe this is a result of the wide range of people with which they have the opportunity to communicate.[7] Critics of unschooling, on the other hand, argue that unschooling inhibits social development by removing children from a ready-made peer group of diverse individuals. [8][9]


The following are common opinions and concerns of people who are critical of unschooling.

• 大多数孩子没有足够的远见来学习成年生活中需要的东西。
• 除非有教育专业人士来控制教材,否则孩子的教育中会有缺失。
• 因为学校提供了现成的同龄人资源,和学校里的同龄人相比,不上学的孩子很难交朋友、提高社交技能。
• 因为学校可以提供成年人和学生的不同群体,不上学的孩子很难接触到不同的文化、社会经济群体和全球化视角。
• 有些孩子缺乏学习动力,会把所有时间耗费在与教育无关的行为上,除非强迫他们做点别的。
• 不是所有的家长都有能力提供有诱发力的环境,或是有技巧和耐心来激发学生的好奇心。
• 因为没有受认可学校颁发的文凭,非学校教育的学生可以更难升入大学或找到工作。
• 自己主导教育的孩子可能缺少服从他人指令的能力。

• Most children lack the foresight to learn the things they will need to know in their adult lives.[10][9]
• There may be gaps in a child's education unless an educational professional controls what material is covered.[11]
• Because schools provide a ready-made source of peers, it may be more difficult for children who are not in school to make friends and develop social skills than it is for their schooled peers.[12][9]
• Because schools may provide a diverse group of both adults and students, it might be more difficult for children who are not in school to be directly exposed to different cultures, socio-economic groups and worldviews.[9]
• Some children are not motivated to learn anything, and will spend all of their time in un-educational endeavors if not coerced into doing otherwise.[13] (a stance that unschoolers directly oppose)
• Not all parents may be able to provide the stimulating environment or have the skills and patience required to encourage the student's curiosity.[10][11]
• Because they often lack a diploma from an accredited school, it may be more difficult for unschooled students to get into college or get a job.[11]
• Children who direct their own educations may not develop the ability to take direction from others.[14]


一个相对较新的现象是非学校教育、学校教育、自我主导学习中心。一些中心是为现有的家庭教育者或非学校教育者创办的,而且通常是由他们创办的;另一些,如 North Star: Self-Directed Learning for Teens(麻省 Hadley)通常会吸引那些还不是非学校教育者(他们可能从来没有听说过非学校教育),但有兴趣采用新的教育形式的人。
A relatively new phenomenon is the unschooling, homeschooling, or self-directed learning center.[15] Some centers are created for (and often by) existing homeschoolers or unschoolers, while others, such as North Star: Self-Directed Learning for Teens[16] in Hadley, Massachusetts, often attract people who aren't currently unschoolers (and may never have heard of unschooling), but are interested in using a new form of education.
Not Back to School Camp is an annual gathering of over 100 unschoolers ages 13 to 18. The camp is directed by Grace Llewellyn, author of The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How To Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education.[17]

Other forms of alternative education

多种其他形式的替代教育同样很看重学生对学习的控制。包括自由学校,如Sudbury Valley School,和“开放学习”虚拟大学。非学校教育和这些方式的不同点在于:非学校教育者不认为机构对于辅助学习来于不是必需的。很多人相信“教育”机构实际上限制了学习,因为最有价值的学习发生在广阔的世界中,而它们把人从中隔离。

Many other forms of alternative education also place a great deal of importance on student control of learning. This includes free schools, like the Sudbury Valley School, and 'open learning' virtual universities. Unschooling differs from these approaches in that unschoolers do not believe that an institution is necessary to facilitate learning. Many believe that 'educational' institutions actually limit learning by removing people from the larger world, where they believe the most valuable learning occurs.
