I’m often asked about alternative methods of education. I’m certainly no expert; I only learned about traditional, public education in college, after all, and the rest of my knowledge comes from my own research and experience with my own child (as well as children I’ve tutored, babysat, homeschooled, etc.).
However, I do know enough to just introduce people to some of these methods (“Bill, meet Waldorf. Like you, he’s really into Robin Hood!”), so I decided to make a list of 10 different alternative methods of education that parents may be interested in. I hope the list inspires parents and teachers to look up more information on these different styles and philosophies.
