I recently discovered a marvellous website - called Wonder Homeschool *, it is full of wonder at the joys of learning.
There are many articles and links to explore, as the author shares her thoughts on homeschooling under the influence of Charlotte Mason, Waldorf and John Holt.
The related blog, too, has a peek into one of the controversies of homeschooling - Thoughts on Watered-Down Waldorf.
I smiled when I read this entry. I have been on many lists with many arguments about Pure Charlotte Mason and Pure Unschooling.
These points seem moot to me.
Surely connection with the child and with the family and with God is paramount, regardless of the purity of the educational method?
