Best "Not Going Back to School Day"

Austin Homeschoolers Park Day at Deep Eddy

On the first day of school, hundreds of lucky kids in Austin converge on Deep Eddy pool to celebrate "Not Going Back to School" Day! These are our legal outlaws: homeschoolers, those charmed children and teens who learn from the living world, the out of doors, their iconoclastic parents, and a variety of hands-on activities. The community has a grand throwdown to celebrate not going back to school: no rulers, no books, no teachers' dirty looks. Just the organic process of learning in one's own way, day by day – and this kickoff gives a hint as to just how grand it is.
