Special Interview: John Holt

Although this post is not about a homeschooling family, I could not resist sharing this video with everyone who reads this blog. This seemed to be a good time since it can serve as kind of a break before we move into the next 100 homeschooling family interviews.

This 'raw-footage' interview was uploaded on Pat Farenga's you tube channel and I just thought it provided such a nice overview of Holt and his ideas on education. Here's just one juicy quote:

"The model for school ought to be the family, not the factory."

"School is a place where children learn to be stupid." I LOVE it!!! And couldn't agree more!

Ah, how wonderful! John Holt was our family's inspiration to homeschool 20 years ago!
