Thread Name: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
When I was doing my postgrad teacher training, we were given books by John Holt to read. I believe he was an American, and I was fascinated by his stance on the harm schools can and do cause in the free development of children. Way, way ahead of his time. Has anyone read any of his work? They included 'How Children Learn' and 'How Children Fail'.
