This has some extreme views against the current western education system and proposes a range of alternatives. Some of the essays are definitely too 'way out' for me but this book has certainly made me think about education, challenged some of my long held views and helped give me a wider perspective on parenting and growing and learning. Refreshing and very interesting, there is much here to chew on and come back to.

I really enjoyed reading this book. There were a lot of the ideas that I disagreed with and a few that I actually found pretty frustrating (teachers "taking advantage of children for their own financial gain"? Really?!). But, either way, it was really interesting to read and definitely made me reconsider the real value of traditional, compulsory schooling.
