Hands-On Homeschooling: Flying Squads

Homeschool Without Borders is putting on a series of 10 workshops at the Carbondale Public Library called "Hands-On Homeschooling."

Abbie had the first session, "Flying Squads for Self-Directed Education." Here are some resources on Flying Squads for anyone who wants to read more.

Flying Squads are NEW and a really cool concept for doing SDE as a group. It's not a democratic school. In fact, it's not a school at all. It has no dedicated physical location. The children utilize public spaces in their city as their meeting places and freely decide what they would like to do and explore during their time together. There is also an adult facilitator.

Abbie is interested in exploring how to bring this concept, which began in New York City, to a more rural environment. If your child is between the ages of 10 and 16 and you are interested, let me know and I'll connect you!
