Les unschoolers ont besoin de congés. Lorsqu'on leur demande s'ils s'instruisent en été, ils répondent "oui". Lorsqu'on leur demande s'ils se reposent parfois de tous ces apprentissages, ils répondent "jamais".

Et cela fait bien longtemps que ça dure.

Le 24 Juillet 2008 sera la première (et peut-être la dernière) journée annuelle "Sans rien apprendre" pour les unschoolers, bien qu’elle puisse être fêtée par quiconque le désire.

"La Journée Sans Rien Apprendre" (Learn Nothing Day) sera célébrée le 25 juillet dans l'Utah (les citoyens de l'Utah sauront

Sylvie, it's like that day is not allowable, or is not applicable, or is cancelled out in Utah for the 24th. (It's because they have a big state holiday that day, Pioneer Day, and it's all about celebrating the history of Utah.)

or maybe

...sera exceptionellement célébrée le 25 juillet dans l'Utah...

or something like that

ps: I like "sans rien apprendre"! I was thinking it could be translated "la journée où on apprend rien" but that sounded kind of awkward...
