How I Quit School #2

How I Quit School #2

by Kione Kochi

Opening with the quote from Wendell Berry, "It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey," the quest for unschooling continues! Withdrawing from institutionalized education, our protagonist eloquently withdraws from school after doing the homework and makes informed decisions. But now she must create and shape her own life in this unstructured environment. With the freedom to travel as she pleases, she misses her friends and contemplates her future. It's relatable. It's powerful. It's emotional. It made me regret not leaving school sooner, difficult as it can be.
