A year of homeschooling. What could possibly go wrong?
In this honest and wry memoir, popular blogger, author, and former child actor Quinn Cummings recounts her familys decision to wade into the unfamiliar waters of homeschooling the fastest-growing educational trend of our time -- despite a chronic lack of discipline, some major gaps in academic knowledge, and a serious case of math aversion. (And thats just Quinn.)
Quinns fearless quest includes some self-homeschooling reading up on education reform, debating the need for socialization, and infiltrating conferences filled with Radical Unschoolers as well as Christian fundamentalists (and even chaperoning a homeschool prom). Part personal narrative, part social commentary, and part how-not-to guide, The Year of Learning Dangerously will make you laugh and make you think. And there may or may not be a quiz at the end. OK, theres no quiz. Probably.
