The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education
Written by a former English teacher, this personable, irreverent, practical, inspiring, funny, and information-packed cult classic is the only complete guide to homeschooling for teenagers. It covers everything from why to consider self-directed education, to convincing parents that quitting school is a marvelous idea, to getting a social life without proms, to designing a tailor-made educational extravaganza (curriculum), to finding mentors, apprenticeships, and meaningful volunteer positions. Vivid examples from the lives of dozens of unschooled teenagers illustrate the authors suggestions. Fans of the Handbook include not only teenagers but many college students, parents, teachers, and school counselors.

Written for teens, the first few chapters will be an eye-opener for most adults. A great introduction to the reasons for avoiding schools - but never education - and why they are not the same thing.
Review: The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and EducationUser Review - Stacy - Goodreads
While I don't agree with the viewpoint of not attending a traditional school, simply because the reasons to do so are NOT well argued in this book, I find that supplemental resources and perspectives on education are useful to anyone, regardless of the type of education they want. Read full review
