Message from Caitlin, the Schoolhouse Organizer:
It is with a heavy heart that I have come to the hard truth that I need to close the doors of Radicle Roots next school year. I have done a lot of soul searching to reach this point, and I know I have to admit it, despite it being an extremely tough call.
Several things have influenced the decision to close. The bottom line is I really want to be with my own family and child more, and am planning on growing my family soon. The growth of the schoolhouse has also brought several challenges that have accumulated beyond the limits of my mental health and energy level.
Here are some other options to consider as an alternative to Radicle Roots:
Whole Life Learning Center
Clearview Sudbury Valley School
Inside Outside School
And if unschooling / deschooling is an option for your family, there are great networks, list-serves, and resource centers to plug into (such as Yawp! in Mueller, Austin Area Homeschoolers, and the Austin Unschoolers FB group), plus many enrichment programs listed in the Directory at Alt-Ed Austin.
In closing, I want you to know how deeply I have appreciated the opportunity to work together with families to create a more just and sustainable future through learning and growing with beautiful young people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Love and Light,
