Like Mother, Like Daughter: Two Stories from a Upattinas Family.
Fielding, Puff; Fielding, Rena
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n10 p17-19 Aut 2001
A mother and daughter describe their family's educational experiences with a K-12 noncoercive free school, Upattinas School and Resource Center (Pennsylvania), and with home schooling and public school. They have learned that people learn best when placed in a supportive environment. Forced learning, as in public school, tends to turn off the desire to learn. (TD)
