He brought an unschooled (a form of homeschooling) youth and a parent to the show to discuss how this option works. He asked, "What would happened if children wanted to veg all day?" He also shared that like many students, he hated school and if he had the choice he would have just watched TV all day. Considering that his profession ended up being that of a TV personality, his instincts to do so, may not have been off!
In this segment Amy Milstein (unschooling parent) and Jude Steffers-Wilson (unschooler) explain to Stossel and his viewers how learning through life works. Why if given the choice “vegging” gets old quickly, and why homeschooled kids are so well socialized as opposed to schooled kids who are forced in an unnatural setting of being segregated by age in a room all day with 30 others of someone else’s choosing.
