Summary

Summary

A provocative, practical response to the crisis in our schools, this book argues boldly for replacing compulsory schooling with a wide variety of home, neighborhood, and community-based educational efforts. Hern examines how the day-to-day experience of school teaches subservience, deadens children's natural love of learning, undercuts their self-esteem, and limits independent thought.
