John Holt: His Prophetic Voice.
Education Revolution, n36 p28-33 Aut 2002
John Holt was a key figure in the free school movement. His belief that school procedures worked against children's natural ways of learning came from his own experiences. Recognizing that genuine democracy can only happen within a genuine community, he felt that social institutions, particularly education, must nourish experiences of belonging, thereby making a just and peaceful world possible.
