Group Description

CCU stands for Christ Centered Unschooling. Unschooling is a style of home schooling based on the ideals of natural learning. John Holt, who is credited with coining the term "unschooling" espoused the idea that children, like all people, are born with an innate desire to learn.

Learning is unavoidable and, if given the encouragement and environment in which to flourish, will happen without coercion or structure. Rigid structure, forced learning and contrived curriculum can be destructive to the desire to learn.

Unschooling, practiced for several decades and by many families, has resulted in confident, productive and independent thinking adults.

As a Christian I believe that unschooling reflects the relationship we have with God, one based on trust, friendship and respect.

This list was formed as a place for Christians who are either unschooling, attempting to implement more unschooling into their lives or just interested in learning more about the ideas.

While the list is open to those who do not consider themselves to be Christian, since it is composed primarily of those who do, respect for the tenets of this faith is expected.

CCU is a forum for friendly exchange of information on unschooling and parenting. While discussion of differing views will be tolerated it must remain courteous and refrain from negative personal comments. All participants are expected to help maintain a welcoming atmosphere for all.
