Spring 2015 Jill Parmer, about her family and unschooling

Future columns will feature ideas from some others it's too early to name, but I intend to introduce unschoolers I've met in my work and travels whose ideas have depth and joy. LATER NOTE: The magazine folded before I could do more interviews.

2016 panel:

Sandra Dodd, Pam Sorooshian, Sue Patterson and Erika Davis-Pitre
(You can click to enlarge, but it's still low-res.)

"I just saw Sandra Dodd speak at the HSC-HomeSchool Association of California conference. So inspiring! Every time I hear Sandra talk, I walk away feeling renewed and empowered and excited. If you homeschool or you are thinking about homeschooling, get her books, go to her website, and if you ever get a chance to hear her speak, don't miss the opportunity." (2016)

2007 Unschooling Panel, questions answered in writing after the event was over:
Unschooling Panel Follow-Up
Some links aren't working anymore, but there are some good responses (not all of which I loved equally).
I spoke at HSC conferences over ten times (there was an unschooling symposium, and in one early year, two conferences in one year). I'll add notes as I come to them.
