A provocative, practical response to the crisis in our schools, this book argues boldly for replacing compulsory schooling with a wide variety of home, neighborhood, and community-based educational efforts. Hern examines how the day-to-day experience of school teaches subservience, deadens children's natural love of learning, undercuts their self-esteem, and limits independent thought.

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.
