Autonomous

The structure and course of education is child-led. The child is allowed to self govern in terms of what s/he wants to learn and when. The parent(s) may often act as facilitators rather than teachers. (In America, this style of education is sometimes referred to as un-schooling, although unschooling can also refer to the period of unwinding following withdrawal from school). Autonomous education doesn’t necessarily mean unstructured, because the child him/herself may decide on a structured approach to learn about some subjects. However, learning is not imposed or controlled by another person. It is also recognised that knowledge is interrelated rather than compartmentalised.
