Hoagies' Blog Hop: Deschooling
It's not homeschooling, and it's not unschooling. It's Deschooling.
But what is it, and who needs it?
Deschooling is recovery, from the trauma that gifted children may
have suffered in their previous school situation. Could deschooling
be necessary after only a year or two of school? It's possible. How
can we know? What can we do?
Deschooling. It may be just what your gifted child needs!

Exactly IS Deschooling... and Do I Need to Do It? by
Coleen, in Raising Lifelong
- I haven't always homeschooled. In fact, I spent a decade working in the
public school system and never even considered homeschooling. My brilliant
son handled any school work that was handed to him, so I assumed that school
would be a breeze for him - until it wasn't.
We're accidental homeschoolers, forged in the fires of failed public school
attempts, and absolutely thriving now. It's taken time and trials to get us
into the rhythm we have now - lots of time and lots of trials. Over the
years we've been able to fine-tune each kiddo's education for their specific
needs in a way the schools were just unable to do. We are in the
homeschooling zone. First, though, we had to deschool.
Deschooling is one of those words you spot often enough in homeschooling
groups that you know it's real, but you're not always sure what exactly it
is. Deschooling is, in its simplest form...
to Deschool a Twice-Exceptional Learner by Teresa Currivan, LMFT, in
Help My Children Thrive
- Deschooling is the process of allowing a student to abstain from any
school or learning-related activities. When unschooling, the objective is to
allow the child’s intrinsic motivation to learn to return.
Deschooling is necessary when a child has experienced school trauma — any
intellectual, social, mental or physical harm within the school setting. The
nature and length of the trauma the child has endured impacts the amount of
time he needs to deschool, from a few months to a few years.
Deschooling differs from unschooling...
Case for Deschooling by
Heather in WonderSchooling
- This is what happens to many new homeschoolers.
After exiting the school, some tend to stay in “school” mode and all the
structure and order it affords. Others go from one extreme to the other,
whether it’s Charlotte Mason, Wild+Free, Unschooling, or pre-packaged
curricula or even online options. Because they don’t know what works for
them and their family, they jump into one system or another, and then get
frustrated and discouraged when it doesn’t work for them.
That’s where Deschooling comes in...
