AERO (Alternative Education
has many homeschoolers and unschoolers in our network, and we have
helped many people start homeschool resource centers and groups. We
help people start educational alternatives that are learner-centered
and have helped start over 100 to date. These include organizations
such as Pono in Manhattan; Kalapa in Colombia; Freedom to Grow
Unschool in GA; Free-Range Learning Co-op in FL; Raw Learning in
Staunton, VA; and A Place to Grow in Stroud, England--just to name a
few. Many of these came about through our online course to help
people start new learner-centered alternatives.
We also have a
conference every year.
This year, it will be at Long Island University's Post Campus August
2-6. There will be 50 workshops, lots of networking, documentary
films, exhibitors, Minecraft, virtual reality demonstrations, and
several keynotes from well-known educators including unschooling
expert Dayna Martin.
Dayna writes, "I will speak about educational freedom and how to
facilitate learning based on what a child loves and is passionate about.
I will share how learning never ends and that the role of child-centered
education is very involved, hands-on and not neglectful or disengaged.
I'll also discuss partnership-based parenting and how a solid foundation
of connection and trust is beneficial for living and learning together
as a family and why."
We always keep the price of the conference at an affordable level
for people in our network. The whole 5 days is currently $275 but
members of Homeschool.com can register for $175 by

Of course, the New York City area is expensive, which is why we have
arranged for people to stay in the college dorms. Special
arrangements can be made for families – just e-mail
or call the AERO office at 516-621-2195. There is no required food
expense; you can eat in the very affordable cafeteria, go out, or
even bring your own food!
We look forward to
welcoming many people from Homeschool.com into our network.
