Deschooling Society

by: Ivan Illich

Publisher: Consortium (1970)

$14.95

Staff Pick by comrade: Lucas

Illich not only shows how our public education system alienates people from their innate ability to learn, he suggests a radically decentralized, self-directed education apparatus. His writing is accessible and his ideas are incredibly engaging.
