Challenging the Giant, Volume II: The Best of SKOLE, the Journal of Alternative Education.
Leue, Mary M., Ed.
This book represents a collection of over 60 articles appearing in SKOLE: the Journal of Alternative Education from 1985 through 1992 and focusing on educational reform and alternatives to public schooling. The journal was created 9 years ago in response to the growing number of families and educators dissatisfied with public schooling and to the increasing number of educators interested in alternative approaches to public education. The book includes descriptions of alternative school programs, approaches to home schooling, and alternative curricula. One section consists of creative writing, including poetry written by students attending alternative schools. Also included are personal narratives of parents, students, and teachers involved in alternative schooling; articles explaining the philosophy and principles of educational alternatives; reviews of periodicals focusing on home schooling, educational reform, and alternative schooling; and examination of research related to alternative education. Included are addresses of authors and of schools and organizations described. Contains photographs. (LP)
