"De-schooling" involves changing the present educational system from one which values only the marketable commodity called "EDUCATION" to one which emphasizes the individual choice of the learner and the process of learning. This book presents statements from those who conceived the idea of de-schooling, as well as from students and teachers involved in de-schooling projects. Several de-schooling projects are described, including universities-without-walls, learning resource networks, and an apprenticeship service program. (JY)
