Deschooling

Deschooling is a process of transition from formal institutional school to homeschooling. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to more than a year, depending on the circumstances of withdrawal.

Deschooling is characterized by a lack of formal academics and a change in typical routines. Parents and children alike are encouraged to rethink what education means and what the goals of homeschooling will be.
