pameladlloyd: Alya, an original character by Ian L. Powell (Default)
[personal profile] pameladlloyd
Filmaker Astra Taylor was unschooled at home, until she chose to attend high school and college. Here, in her first speech, she discusses what it means to be unschooled, the advantages and disadvantages for individuals, and the consequences for our society of schooling and unschooling.

This video, part of the Walker Art Center Artist Talk series, is quite long, an hour and fifteen minutes, but Astra makes some interesting and astute points about education in and out of formal institutions. Oh, and you can safely skip most of the long introduction by the announcer; the actual talk starts at 0:03:45.
