Amy Milstein is an active member of the NYC Home Educators Alliance (NYCHEA). She and her husband Joshua unschool their two children, Maya 13 and Ben 9, who have never been to school.
Amy is a native of Columbus Indiana, attended Earlham College and then dropped out of Grad School at NYU. Joshua is from Israel, did not attend college, and owns a successful business in Manhattan.
The Milsteins are pioneers of unschooling in the big city. Their goal is to create an awareness of unschooling as a viable option for families looking for alternatives to traditional curriculum based schooling.
