John Holt and the Origins of Contemporary Homeschooling.
Farenga, Patrick
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, v1 n1 p8-13 Spr 1999
Traces the development of John Holt's educational philosophy. His initial realization that forcing children to learn stifled their initiative and creativity led to efforts at school reform that were not welcomed by the school establishment. The idea that education is a community function rather than an institutional function moved him to advocating childrens' rights and home schooling. (TD)
