What is it?
Uncollege is a social movement dedicated to help people hack their own education. Dale Stephens started it after quitting school when he was twelve and finding a group of people who where doing unschooling rather than home schooling. The movement was created in early 2011 to explicitly help people self-direct their own education.
Why is it DIY?
This is the ultimate devolvement of responsibility for learning. Getting outside of the formal system to organize a curriculum for yourself that fits your personal interests and needs.
