Gotz, Ignacio L., Ed.
The idea of deschooling society is presented in diverse forms by this collection of criticisms, suggestions, and experiments for education. A first group of essays takes the historical perspective and examines the goals and problems of the past and their relation to our present educational system. Other articles criticize modern education, focusing on its rigidity, alienation of the student, and inapplicability to real life. A final group of essays discusses alternatives such as educational vouchers, free schools, schools without walls, and new kinds of teachers. (RH)
