He too vacillates a bit between the two. "Mom, I should do all the regular high school subjects, just in case", or "Mom, I really feel I do better when we unschool some stuff."
It doesn't help that there isn't a lot out there, that I can find, about unschooling the high school years. It seems that many unschooling families do a 180 when they reach ninth grade (How to Stop Unschooling Attrition), or at least I've seen that in more than one case. Of course, I have read about studies like this one: How do Unschoolers Turn Out?, and I've heard of unschoolers heading off merrily to college, like the Colfax family, I still worry.
What if I turn my wonderfully curious son into the class dunce?
I don't know yet if I have the courage it seems it will take to make this jump, this leap of faith.
Any words of wisdom out there?
