The Free Learner: A Survey of Experiments in Education.
Woulf, Constance
As an alternative to the traditional public school, some educators recommend an environment rich in academic, artistic, and athletic stimuli, from which the child can take what he wants when he wants it. This survey represents the observations of visitors to classrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area which are run on the free learner principle. Twenty private schools, two experimental programs in public schools, and two public schools which are working within the framework of compulsory education are described. As a preface to the descriptions of the actual schools, a fictitious "Hill School" is described which embodies much of the philosophy and practice of the free school ideal. A table of data is also presented which gives information about the student and teacher population and financial status of each of the schools described.
