Another grown unschooler speaks about being unschooled

Here is a video I found by a grown unschooler upset by the recent negative portrayal of unschooling in the media.

This is nice but is this woman well rounded if she gets to do what she wants to? I was forced to study things I didn't want to and now I am grateful because i would have been ignorant in so many areas. So, i am doubtful that unschooling produces well rounded people.

How would you define being well rounded?

thanks for sharing this - especially hard for me at the point is having a computer/video game obsessed child - hearing positive outcomes to this really helps!

To be well rounded means to know a little about most topics that living in society -you'd expect people to know. A bit of politics, world history, science, the masters in the arts etc.

Here is a really neat talk on TED by Jane McGonigal about how gaming can make the world a better place:
