Let’s ask some unschoolers what they think.
Colleen has many degrees AND many gaps in her knowledge.
Jessica’s 15 yo son is enrolled in UC Berkeley in spite of his education “gaps.”
Robin is glad her “late blooming” daughter didn’t have to be a late bloomer in school.
Sandra says “the idea that anyone gets through school without gaps is a fallacy.”
Deb says when her son goes to a job interview, nobody asks “How old were you when you first learned to read?”
Susie says “they learn what they need to know – and it may be haphazard – but it will all coalesce in beautiful ways that we can’t necessarily predict.”
