Outside the Net; A New Magazine in Education. (Special Issue, Spring 2).
Vanden Brink, John D., Ed.; Wilbur, Thomas, Ed.
The stated aim of "Outside the Net" is to analyze and reveal the dominant educational system from a radical perspective and to work to create a new one. To that end it publishes articles critical of the present educational system, such as a critique of the "cult of I.Q." and an expose of racism in Nancy Drew mysteries. The magazine also contains articles about some new approaches to education, such as a report on the Seminar-On-Wheels project, a first-hand account of a classroom teacher's attempt to divide his classroom into activity areas, and a biography outlining the educational ideas of Homer Lane, a pioneer in educational experimentation. There are also extensive book reviews and a list of resource organizations and publications dedicated to alternative education. (JY)
