About the Author

John Holt (1923–1985), writer, educator, lecturer, and amateur musician, wrote ten books, including How Children Fail, How Children Learn, Never Too Late, Learning All the Time, and Teach Your Own. His work has been translated into over fourteen languages. How Children Fail, which the New York Review of Books rated as “in a class with Piaget,” has sold over a million copies in its many editions. How Children Learn has sold over 750,000 copies and both of these books, written in the 1960s, have remained in print since. John Holt, for many years a leading figure in school reform, became increasingly interested in how children learn outside of school—what Holt called “unschooling.” The magazine he created, Growing Without Schooling (published from 1977 to 2001), helped found the modern homeschooling movement, which now has over two million children learning outside of school. Holt’s work is presented and continued at www.JohnHoltGWS.com.
