What are the pros and cons of this, in your opinion and based on research? What is your personal experience with homeschooling and/or unschooling? Do you know anyone who educates in either of these non-traditional ways? If money and time were not factors; would you school your children or grandchildren outside of the traditional classroom? Why or why not? Would you have wanted to be schooled outside of the traditional classroom as a child or adolescent? Do you consider online learning at the college level non-traditional learning?
