why we homeschool: john holt

john holt
— one of the founders of the unschooling movement
is another author i read
back when i was first just thinking about homeschooling.
he was very encouraging to me
and help me understand
and put into words
why i felt how i felt.
when folks have questions about homeschool,
here is where i get many of my responses.

holt has several books but start with these two:
how children learn

(the companion book is how children fail.)

  1. I have heard Holt’s name invoked a lot recently. I get the impression he really did a lot for the homeschooling movement. I need to read some of his stuff. Thanks for the recommendations.
