You've probably heard of home schooling, but have you ever heard of "unschooling?"

Julie Ogata from Parentmap says unschooling is related to home schooling because the child is not in a traditional school and learns at home, but unschooling is "child led" learning.

Basically the child is calling the shots and deciding what they want to study. In homeschooling, the parent follows a curriculum.
