I am one of the board of this group, and I'm definitely not an unschooler. I'm a classical, highly academic homeschooler, and I'd say a higher percentage of the group is on the academic side than on the Unschooling side.
I will also add that HOMe isn't a business. We're a cooperative support group. What that means is that if you want field trips, plan field trips and post on the board. If you want academic clubs and groups, start academic clubs and groups. If you want park days and unschooling-related. Whenever I've heard complaints, it's tended to come from those who expect to come in and have all the planning and work done for them. If you want someone to homeschool for you, if you want classes that will take care of part of your academic curriculum, or if you want to find a group of people who all think alike, HOMe is not for you. If you want others who are trying to find a way to make it work, from those who use TNVA to those who use academic curricula, to those who outsource classes, to those who are unschoolers by philosophy, HOMe just may be what you need to support you.
