How travelling the world allows new ways to educate children and perform family life on the move A growing number of families are selling their houses, quitting their jobs, and taking their children out of traditional school settings to educate them while traveling the globe. In The World is Our Classroom, Jennie Germann Molz explores the hopes and anxieties that drive these parents and children to leave their comfortable lives behind out of a desire to live the "good life" on the move.Drawing on interviews with parents and stories from the blogs they publish during their journeys, as well as her own experience traveling the world with her ten-year-old son, Germann Molz takes us inside a fascinating life spent on trains, boats, and planes. She shows why many parents-disillusioned with standard public schooling-believe the world is a child's best classroom. Rebelling against convention, these parents combine technology and travel to pursue a different version of the good life, one in which parents can work remotely as "digital nomads," participate in like-minded communities online, and expose their children to the risks, opportunities, and life lessons that the world has to offer.Ultimately, Germann Molz sheds light on the emerging phenomenon of "worldschooling," showing that it is not just an alternative way to educate children, but an altogether new kind of mobile lifestyle. The World is Our Classroom paints an extreme portrait of twenty-first century parenting and some families' attempts to raise global citizens prepared to thrive in the uncertain world of tomorrow.
