Inhaltsangabe: Best known for his paean to self-sufficiency, Living the Good Life, which became a bestseller that Newsweek called "an underground bible for the city-weary," Scott Nearing was also a high-profile public advocate for education reform at the start of the Progressive era. Lamenting that public schools had failed to keep up with societal changes, Nearing traveled the country during the early decades of the twentieth century, documenting schools that had abandoned a traditional authoritarian stance in favor of child-centered practice. Now, in the first decade of the twenty-first century, the vignettes, interviews, and speculations on school restructuring, curriculum development, and educational reform that he offered in The New Education a century ago are relevant once again.
Über den Autor: Scott Nearing was born in 1883 and died in 1983. He was an educator, peace activist, conservationist, simple-living advocate, and antiracist worker, as well as the author or co-author of several bestselling books. Herbert Kohl is the National Book Award-winning author of more than forty books. He lives in San Francisco.
