Freedom in Education. Chapter One: Creative Development in Education.
Ferm, Elizabeth Byrne
SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v15 n1 p64-73 Win 1998
Published in 1949, chapter 1 of a book by the Stelton Modern School's coprincipal discusses the natural self-directed development of creativity and intellect in children. This process is thwarted and wasted by conventional schooling's emphasis on conformity, discipline, and uniform structured activities that have no relevance to the individual child's needs or creative impulses.
