Self Directed Education

The Biological Foundations of Self-Directed Education

Peter Gray, Ph.D. & Rock Tree Sky

Sunday, March 5th, 2pm

Peter Gray, Ph.D., research professor at Boston College, is author of Free to Learn (Basic Books, 2013) and Psychology (Worth Publishers, a college textbook now in its 7th edition).  He has conducted and published research in comparative, evolutionary, developmental, and educational psychology. He did his undergraduate study at Columbia University and earned a Ph.D. in biological sciences at Rockefeller University. His current research and writing focus primarily on children’s natural ways of learning and the life-long value of play. His own play includes not only his research and writing, but also long distance bicycling, kayaking, back-woods skiing, and vegetable gardening.

Rock Tree Sky hosts a program for homeschoolers and unschoolers ages 4 to 18 that gives children the freedom and responsibility to direct their own education, govern their learning community, and gain mentorship and academic guidance from caring and skilled adults.

All interested parents, educators and child advocates are welcome! No one turned away for lack of funds.

$15 suggested donation at the door. $10 each for groups of two or more.
