After Deschooling, What?
Gartner, Alan, Ed.; And Others
This volume includes ten articles. In the first, "After Deschooling, What?" Ivan Illich goes beyond his argument for deschooling, to the beginning of some thoughts about what society and education might look like following it. The remaining nine articles contain the reactions of a number of serious and active educators to the Illich article. They each found the concept of deschooling useful as a framework for summarizing the problems of traditional education. But they differed on the degree to which Illich was useful and/or sensible outside the context of his critique. These articles are: "Toward a Political Economy of Education: A Radical Critique of Ivan Illich's 'Deschooling Society,'" Herbert Gintis; "All Schooled Up," Colin Greer; "Taking Illich Seriously," Sumner M. Rosen;"After Illich, What?" Judson Jerome; "The Case for Schooling America," Arthur Pearl; "Need for a Risk Quotient," Roy P. Fairfield; "And It Still Is News," Maxine Green; "My Ivan Illich Problem" Neil Postman; and, "After Deschooling, Free Learning," Ronald Gross. (Author/JM)
