Clark Aldrich « Culture Shocks   Clark Aldrich has a podcast up for listening of his talk on Culture Shocks with Barry Lynn.
Education expert Clark Aldrich has explored the practices of homeschoolers and unschoolers (those who eschew the structure or curricula of schools) and distilled a list of 55 ”rules,” that are changing both the way children are taught and our vision for schools in Unschooling Rules.
