There was a commercial on TV, when John Holt was writing his books, and that is the reason unschooling has the name it has:
Neither of those is the most famous, but that one has been removed from youtube for some reason. the actor is Geoffrey Holder and he did commercials for 7-Up for years. They were famous, and funny, and so something that wasn't same-old (school) was called the UN-[same-old].
"Unschooling works well when parents are interesting, positive, thoughtful, considerate, generous, passionate, honest, respectful individuals." —Deb Lewis

Jenny Cyphers, on Always Learning:
Intellectually, I got unschooling all the way from the very beginning. The part that took more time was relationships and wholeness. When I got THAT, that is when things started happening in the direction that made unschooling work great!
