British Columbia-The Best Place to Unschool?

Forgive my ignorance, but I have only just discovered that I live in one of the best places in the world to unschool my children.  I was reading a book on homeschooling and it had an entire chapter dedicated to the legalities of homeschooling country by country.  I was shocked to find out that homeschooling …
