Check out this blog post by a 14-year-old unschooler who decided to try out public school. It's an insightful and colorful post and gives some indication of what my daughter, Livy, will be like in 9 years: attitude, intelligence, insight.
BTW, "unschooling" is a means of raising children without formal schooling or direction on their learning and lifestyle. The parents ensure that the learning materials relevant to the child's values and direction are always (or as often as possible) provided. This kind of "schooling" allows the child's volition to remain intact.
