An overview of my unschooling life, and the path to who I am and what I do today. I work as an apprentice automotive technician, have entrepreneurial aspirations, and am very interested in, and passionate about, the state of the world. I also want to contribute to demystifying freedom and self-directed learning for children. I will provide a 15-minute presentation to leave the rest open to your questions.
Matthew is a 22-year-old who grew up as a radical unschooler. As a popular speaker on a few unschooling panels in the past, he is back to share his unique wisdom. Matt left school at the age of 7, after which his mother unexpectedly discovered natural learning (a.k.a. unschooling) and respect-based parenting. Matthew forged his own path and continues to do so – as learning never ends, and contributing to a changing and changeable world requires flexibility and self-determination.
