SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v13 n1-4 1996
The four issues of "SKOLE" published in 1996 include articles about alternatives to public education, the value of free schools and home-schooling, and children's learning experiences. Feature articles include profiles of alternative schools and educational programs; descriptions of learning experiences and teaching practices; a study of full inclusion; discussions of the renewal of education and culture, the power of nonviolence, and Japanese education; suggestions on child rearing; a history of how the current system of compulsory "factory schooling" came about; criticism of the growing use of Ritalin and other drugs with children; interviews with educators and social scientists; and descriptions of three alternative education conferences. Two of the journal issues are devoted to children's poems, writings, and artwork produced by students at free schools and other small alternative schools. Also included are reviews of books, movies, magazines, and audiotapes; commentaries; and photographs. (SV)
