Who Needs College?

In Uncategorized on August 2, 2010 at 4:07 pm

Heather Martin is the kind of young woman I wish I had been. Homeschooled from second grade, she wanted to continue her unschooling into college. So she created her own university, the Outdoor Recreation Institute of New England, with herself as the only student and also the faculty and administrator. She created the curriculum, transcripts and diploma.
You can read her unschooling philosophy and check out some interesting links at her blog.

I heard about her from the latest issue of Tiny House Living because she built her own tiny house, something else I always wanted to do.
