Product description

Product Description

This directory is an essential, introductory source book for those who wish to study alternatives to the present regressive and counter-productive education system today.

Too often we are told that 'there is no alternative to the education provided in state schools today and it comes to many as a shock to hear that alternative approaches have been followed successfully for generations by alternative schools and families.

In more than 50 short articles of just a few pages each, professor Roland Meighan explores a great many alternative, child friendly, approaches to education looking at key features and how they challenge the institutional orthodoxy. He particularly looks at the startling success story that is home education, how it has it's roots in ideas that predate the phenomena and concludes that they are trail blazers for the next education system.

Essential reading for all those involved in education, students and practitioners alike, who want to explore the breadth of alternative approaches and ideas in education.
