Most worldschoolers travel for extended periods of time — for weeks, months, or years. To manifest a long-term journey, they must alter many aspects of their lives at home: find remote work, re-home their pets, sell material items, rent their home, convince relatives that they’re not mad, and more.
Because of all the work that goes into worldschooling, the term transcends the idea of merely educating their children. Worldschooling, which demands massive life changes, is, in fact, a lifestyle.
At its core, worldschooling is a lifestyle in which parents educate their children through intentional interaction with the world outside of their borders. But it involves more than education in the traditional sense. Worldschooling incorporates the best of travel: Families weave together bucket-list sites, knowledge acquisition, personal growth, bonding, and memory-making filled with awe and wonder, emerging with life-changing results.
