Does school have to happen in a building? Or even in a home? Can there be school without textbooks, walls, and formally trained teachers?  Does education have to planned for you or can you plan it for yourself? What if the curriculum you followed was written just for you, influenced by your curiosities and interests?  What if you could "hack" your own education? Would you?

Hello all, I have a few questions I'm hoping ya'll can help me with.

Right now my daughter is going to a public virtual school, but ISTEP starts next semester and just..no.  No.  So we're going to be making the fully homeschooled/unschooling jump probably in December.  I'm looking up the legalities and technicalities and whatnot.  Thankfully I live in a state (Indiana) that has very lax laws concerning homeschooling, but I'm reading that they still want you to log attendance and keep a transcript.  How does that work with unschooling?  Proving they're doing grade appropriate things.  I'm probably overthinking it, but I tend to worry about things.  Any suggestions/help/answers are very much appreciated <3

Have just been on an epic drive across half of Australia - such a wild ride. We're totally going to start planning homeschooling road trips!

Has anyone got any favorite online articles about "deschooling" I could send a friend?  She just pulled her son from school and has also just started a Masters program.  She's feeling overwhelmed and presuring herself with the concept that she needs to get started with a homeschool program right away.  So, I'm looking for well-written materials I could forward her electronically to help her consider at least a decent sized deschooling period for the moment, for both their sakes'.

Not sure if this is the right category to put this in, but what does a day in the life of your unschooler(s) look like? I'll start with my almost 15 yr old playing a video game (lately DayZ) and my 7 yr old daughter watching her shows (she's actually been unschooling since April, so unrestricted TV is new to her). Next up for her is to play Minecraft on her PC once I have it set up correctly! :) During the day she might bake with her mother, ride her bike to a friends house (once her friend is out of school), or maybe she's out hanging with some homeschooling or unschooling group doing some activity.
