it is legal in NC there are actually a large number of unschoolers in the Carolinas :)

I am in Columbia, SC

There is a site for us http://unschoolinginthecarolinas.ning.com/

and there is a conference held in Charlotte in August. It is GREAT. I went the first year we decided to go with Unschooling and I learned so much.

Welcome! We do child-led learning much of the time. I don't like the term Unschool since so many radical unschoolers ave given it a bad rep. Basically, i observe & talk with my kids to determine subjects they are interested in learning. Then i find a billion different resources and make the environment condusive to learning (aka imited tv & gamingtime).

A popular blogger who unschools wrote about it here. It's a good read.

Okay.  I used to live in and homeschool in Hickory.  So...  Start here http://www.ncdnpe.org/registration/hhh110a.aspx.  That is a link on the State's website for the  Notice of Intent to Operate a Home School.  Follow the directions provided.  They will then contact you with further directions, including, but not limited to providing them with at least your high school diploma.

Unschooling, for lack of a better term (until people start to accept living as part and parcel of learning), is the natural way to learn. However, this does not mean unschoolers do not take traditional classes or use curricular materials when the student, or parents and children together, decide that this is how they want to do it. Learning to read or do quadratic equations are not "natural" processes, but unschoolers nonetheless learn them when it makes sense to them to do so, not because they have reached a certain age or are compelled to do so by arbitrary authority.

I have homeschooled five children using the Robinson Curriculum. It  focuses on reading, writing and math.

We have 2 out of college, 2 in college and one at home. It was a good choice for us.

A good writing program is The Writing Course

Best of luck,

Jody
