Instead of Education - ways to help people do things better
Most people are convinced (but they never apply) that our present educational system is not only mindless, but harmful as well. It damages children and ruthlessly suppresses their creative urges and individual identities. The most successful students are also the most dull and unimaginative, as efficiency in learning is exclusively identified with cramming.
Instead of Education is for parents, teachers, and for all thoughtful people who are still questioning the purpose of our educational system. The book could actually assist you to save your child’s mind and spirit from the pernicious and alarming affects of our present day schooling.
One of John Holts classics, the book is replete with practical suggestions for improving childrens learning and freeing them from the tyranny of the school.
