When we discuss about unschooling on this blog, we talk about how school is a negative both for child and parent. How it is a negative ROI. Both in terms of learning, mental development as well as economically.
Once people learn that schooling model is a problem,
Then the natural progressive question is , what if not school? What if not school?
Now, many parents choose for homeschooling , or some just keeping children at home. This can be a little challenging for some parents, as some have JOB commitments. And most live in nuclear families.
Parents already are overloaded with work, and errands it is very difficult for them to take out full time for children.
Changing times – nuclear families
we are not living in older times where communities were safe as most people lived around extended families. Children were taken care of, their fooding, well being was there.
Today we live in cities where we don’t even know the person living in the apartment next door. The community factor is very important for a child to learn.
So how can we bring back the same safe, healthy community life back to childhood?
We suggest learning centers with small groups of children 20-30
