    I would say he "unschooled" himself.  I always think of "schooled" as a transitive verb, something one person does to another.  Particularly when the word is used in sports slang when one player just totally outplays another, presumably "schooling" (teaching) them a lesson they will never forget.

    Anyway... just interesting semantics, and confessing my bias, I'm an unschooler.

      that he went out into the world and started learning (if I could go back and edit my comment). Or I guess you could say he "unschooled" himself because he had to deprogram from what he had been taught.

      I had to unschool myself so that I could relax and let my kids learn (explore, discover, interpret, observe, etc, etc, etc).
