Radical Humanism in Practice: The Scandinavian Folkehojskole.
Leslie, David W.
Review of Higher Education, v17 n3 p283-303 Spr 1994
The "folkehojskoler," innovative Scandinavian secondary schools based on radical humanistic ideas, are examined from both empirical and philosophical perspectives, focusing on three elements: ideology; the student experience; and the teaching culture. Implications for goals, objectives, assumptions, forms, and practices in American postsecondary schools are explored. (MSE)
