Unschooling is an educational philosophy based on the idea that children are natural learners, not needing to be led or filled with information, but learning best when they study what interests them in their own way and at their own pace. Unschooling involves letting a child choose when, how, and if to learn a specific topic. It is providing an atmosphere rich in resources, then letting the child learn what she chooses and needs to learn for her own life.

Non-coercive, interest-led, home and community-based, learner-directed education for all ages (also known as life learning, unschooling, natural learning, and free-range learning).

As a general rule, unschoolers are homeschoolers, but not all homeschoolers are unschoolers. The main qualifier is whether education is parent-directed or child-directed (unschooling).
