Learning Not Schooling

Don Glines, who has the premier book on educational alternatives (available in our store), has written Declaring War against Schooling: Personalized Learning Now. Dr. Glines has distilled 50 years of his forward thinking and practice into this profoundly important work. He finds that research supports radically different kinds of schools. In fact, the word “school “carries the baggage of obsolete beliefs and sets us on the wrong path of trying to fix it. He emphasizes starting with learning, a human trait, to design optimal conditions rather than just repairing what we now have. Don is also famous for having directed the Wilson campus school during the 60s and 70s, seen by many as the most innovative school in the nation, then and since. A videotape of that school is also available in our store.
