Does Travel Negatively Affect a Childs Education?

Our Global Unschool Adventure

We found this post writtten last week by Caz makepeace from Y Travel Blog really sums up how we feel about our children’s education.

I was once a teacher in a classroom frustrated by the direction of the Australian Curriculum, and the negative effects of standardised testing. It frustrated me even more when I saw my kids loosing interest in learning, and losing confidence. Our decision to travel with the kids has meant that we do very little of what would be considered normal ‘school work’, and yet we are watching our children grow in confidence and learn every day.
