On the Radical Unschooling Network forum, someone who was prohibiting TV in the home wrote:
So, after some 30 posts to this discussion of TV, no one besides me seems to have anything but glowing things to say about TV. Some of the ideas presented here have been persuasive to me. There is a combination of strong arguments in 'Rat-Park' and 'Marginal Utility Economics' as well as numerous reports of personal experience with good results from including TV in the lives of unshooling families. I'm going to ruminate with these ideas for a while.Jenny Cyphers replied:
I know a few people who are unschooling without TV. Personally, I don't think it works well to limit life like that. Like it or not, TV is a huge part of our culture and in fact the world! There is no way to avoid TV entirely, unless you live very remotely, isolated from the world, which isn't really conducive to unschooling at all.
