I think unschooling is fine- with intent and direction. Letting kids watch tv or play video games half the day is not going to work. But with an educational environment and plenty of hands-on materials and guidance provided, I think it works as well as anything else. I agree that a math program should be used though. I know of several unschooling families with grown children who recommend the same.
