My parents, being hippies, decided I should try homeschooling for one year. While doing so, I met a lot of people who did  homeschooling and a lot of people who did "unschooling" where they were allowed complete control of their own education. One of the biggest things I noticed was that there was a huge disparity in maturity between them. While in public and private schools, you'll get your ass handed to you should you step too far out of line, creating a small standard deviation from an average level of maturity, the homeschoolers and unschoolers were all over the place, depending mostly on how involved their mothers were in their education.    
   
For example, I was taking a physics class with a bunch of other homeschoolers and unschoolers (I don't get it either), and one kid who was about 16 at the time began making 9-11 jokes while the volunteer teacher talked. She asked him to stop, seeming as no one else could hear her speak and because she helped to pull bodies out of the rubble, but the 			******		 just kept talking without even looking at her. He also had never heard of Newton and only knew how to write based on how words sounded. He wasn't unusual in his level of maturity or literacy either.   
   
TL;DR 			****		 unschooling.

The main problem I see with this is that kids don't generally know what it takes to get a proper education - for that matter kids generally don't know anything until they are taught it, that's kind of the thing about having not experienced life before. Although I agree there should be more opportunity for free thinking in schools, letting kids attend class when they 'feel like it' seems like a recipe for disaster. Even if kids do eventually show interest in attending class, they probably won't show interest in all subjects equally, meaning that they might ignore classes they don't like, thus leaving huge gaps in their knowledge. Then you have the problem of kids who just don't ever start caring, because not all kids care about knowledge, they just want to dick around on the playground. Although there's nothing wrong with 'kids being kids' all kids do need a certain amount of structure and direction, this is what allows us to gain organizational skills and motivation, thus aiding us in growing into responsible adults. Adults have learned their life lessons through trial and error, and it is our job to guide kids in a direction that will allow them to be successful and fulfill their dreams. Sometimes that involves making them do and learn things they may not want to, because part of life is putting up with both the things we like and the things we hate.

TL;DR - kids should be allowed to have fun, but giving them structured schedules is a critical part of ensuring they develop good organizational skills and enabling them to handle the not so fun parts of life.

We had a similar system in our country (the Netherlands), the so-called "Iederwijs"-education. Here, children could also decide for themselves what they did all day, which included playing. Surprisingly, that's all they would do! A few of them, which were really interested in learning, ended up with only a minor educational disadvantage (because they were for example interested in math, which meant they fell behind in grammar), but most of them ended up with a huge lag in development (some of them had racked up a deprivation of 3-4 years in the 5-6 years they had attended the school). There were some interviews done with some of the children, and even though they said they really liked it, they were completely incapable of answering even the simplest questions (if I remember correctly there was even a kid aged 10 or 11 which was still illiterate).

I'm not against innovation in education, as I went to quite a free school myself*, but you can't trust children that young to make the right choices and if they make the wrong choices, not only will they be a burden to the rest of society (especially in the more socialist countries), they will also most likely regret it for the rest of their lives.

*At my school they basically said, "these are the things that you're supposed to have finished by the end of the year", after which we could decide when we did them, but they would always check if you didn't fall behind to far on schedule. For me it worked out really well, as I could handle the freedom and felt more at home in this type of education, however, there were also enough children who could not handle it and transferred back to "normal" schools.

It wouldn't work as they get older though, a lot of teenagers I know already try to miss as many lessons in a certain subject as it is.

Seems to make sense. While I don't necessarily enjoy going to class I always feel guilt why I miss a lesson seeing as it's my own education that I lost out on.

I have a plan for when I have children. Some may say it's wrong but whatever. When my child is 3 and 4 and I want to force my child to do physically demanding work like yardwork and other house chores. Not in a way that's like "help daddy out" type of deal, but be mean about it. Tell them the only way to not have to do it is to get an education and if grades slip then they go immediately back to work. It probably won't be effective, but **** , I'll just sell that kid and try again with a new one with a different approach.

Kids want to learn, schools just don't let them learn.
-I was given detention and called a cheater because I did algebra in me head. They wouldn't let me sit the higher maths paper despite me proving I could get at least a B.
-I got a low mark on my first draft English original writing because my teacher didn't like the plot, not her personal preference of genre.
-History was dull as **** ; Civil war (they never told us specifically the English civil war, I failed because I did about civil wars in general including American, French, Spanish, German and the Italians wars). WWII was just about British soldiers. I never even knew Russia, China, Italy or Japan were involved. I though Hiroshima and Nagasaki was just America being America. It was piss poor teaching. "Vikings" was taught like a bad Avengers fanfic and all I got was a trip to the Jorvik centre (and the railway museum, the **** ?!). I learned more about Egyptians from YuGiOh than from school, same with War of the Roses. Everything I know about England's kings and queens comes from Doctor Who and Japan, friggin Japan.
-They forced us to learn French, smarter people got to do German and even smarter people go to do Spanish. Germanic languages are easier than Latin for English speakers. Given the state of England right now, Polish would have been helpful.

Im in my 4th year of university, so ive seen all the different primary education styles and what they produce later in life. ill share some of my experiences and observations.

1: the public education standardized student. these people generally have little drive/ ambition as they were basically funneled through school their whole life where im from (central Cal.) when they first get to college they usually struggle at first as this is probably the first time they've had to really work at something to get good grades. id say 1/3 flounder and drop out, 1/3 do ok from the start and do average (C+) all the way through, and the rest really succeed when they realize what they can do when they are pressured.

2: private schoolers: these are the ones who got a rather good primary education and know how to work to get something done. in theory they are the most well prepared for college as private school is usually held to higher standards than public school. But, most private school teachings are about the process to an answer, where college is only about the result. coming from a encouraging or sugar coated environment to a place where people couldn't care less about you is difficult. and learning that nobody is going to hold your hand along the way takes some adaptation. this was my situation.

3: The homeschoolers (the ones who were their entire lives): these people can go either way. most ive associated with are insanely brilliant and smart. thy get the highest grades with little effort. and they are kings of time management. But their social skills are crap stemming from a general lack of involvement that proper school provides. these are mostly the accounting, music, and business majors ive noticed. there really arnt many struggling homeschoolers in college, because if they cannot succeed they just don't go to university

4: foreign student: the best most involved , highest scoring people on campus. they set all the curves. good to have in a groupe project.

Uh, as someone who goes to college and has a choice of going to class, that's not how it works at all in reality...
