Unschooling is the term given to an increasingly popular method of homeschooling. Proponents of unschooling argue that a system of public education does not allow children to receive the best education available, as it is too centralized. Under unschooling education, parents act as facilitators and are responsible for having a wide-range of resources available to provide their children with a quality education.
This model is sometimes used in schools, such as the Sudbury Valley School.
A famous person which only visited for a short time a school was Thomas Alva Edison.
