Anything School Can Do You Can Do Better [137 KB]
Marie Mullarney
Marie Mullarney taught all eleven of her children at home until they were eight or nine. Neither she, nor her husband had any teaching experience when they began but, influenced by the writings of Maria Montessori, they and their children discovered the delights and rewards of learning at home. This book is not only a unique and charming record of the early learning experiences, achievements and later careers of Marie Mullarney’s own children; she also gives practical advice on the methods, books and aids which worked for her so that other parents can teach their children at home.

Compulsory Miseducation [110 KB]
Paul Goodman
Paul Goodman argues that subjecting young people to institutionalized learning stunts and distorts their natural intellectual development, makes them hostile to the very idea of education, and finally turns out regimented competitive citizens likely only to aggravate our current social ills. He prescribes an increased involvement in the natural learning patterns of family and community and of the sort of relationships fostered in master-apprentice situations. The argument of this book is that every child must be educated to the fullest extent, brought up to be useful to society and to fulfill his own best powers.
