The Promise of Deschooling
Verhalen Lacey

Politics, Pedagogy, Culture, Self-design, Community Control. It is virtually anathema in our culture, but I want to argue here that our society needs far fewer schools, not more. I believe that schools as we have conceived them in the late-20 th Century are a parasite on our communities, a burden to our children and are the very essence of a hierarchical, anti-ecological culture.
