ole-four-eyes - reviewed A Life Worth Living: The Selected Letters of John Holt on
On the back cover: "The letters of education critic and reformer John Holt were worksheets for his public writing as well a a fascinating record of his time. They contain some of his most poignant insights into education and educational reform, school, and politics. In this absorbing collection, Holt can be seen at his fiercest--openly challenging the usefulness and wisdom of compulsory schools, of universities, of the institution of childhood--and at his freshest, revealing thoughts conceived in the moment of writing."
With an introduction by Susannah Sheffer, of the now defunct _Growing Without Schooling_ magazine.
