Editorial Reviews

Review

What is a 'complete' education, and how can parents foster healthy growth for children? Hern presents an argument against focussing on schools for education, presenting articles and gathering writings which show how parents can start the deschooling process and replace school emphasis with workable alternatives. Send for the free New Society Publishers catalog for a complete listing of their titles. -- Midwest Book Review

This book made me examine my assumptions and opinions on schooling and education... question things I have always taken for granted. It's a collection of essays and writings that will inspire you and give you courage.

This was one of the best books I have ever read in my life (not very many though). It gives an extremely accurate synopsis of the American education system. I read it for debate and realized that almost everything said in it was very true. Great book. I recommend it to everyone, whether and philosopher, educator or just an average Joe.

Este es uno de los mejores libros que he leído. La verdad sobre la educación en las escuelas. Estoy segura de que este es un libro que pocos educadores han leído...que lástima!
Sería grandioso que existiera la traducción al idioma español, me encantaría que todo Mexico lo leyera, al menos los profesores y encargados de las escuelas que tanto daño hacen a los niños...
Este es un libro que no se pueden perder!
