National Homeschooling Publications
Live Free Learn Free
Live Free Learn Free is a magazine for unschoolers and relaxed homeschoolers in which to share ideas, stories, and experiences. All material is written by those who home educate – both parents and children. It is an inclusive magazine, not only for and by experienced unschoolers, but also for and by those just starting down the path. It embraces those who are radical in their unschooling methods and those who are less so. But mostly, it’s a magazine about children living life – really living life – unhindered by curriculums, by lunch bells and standardized tests, by schoolyard bullies and tedious homework. It’s about freedom. It’s about families growing closer than they ever dreamed possible. If you unschool, this is the magazine for you!
