    Thanks for that link to Freire’s Pedagogy, I’ve been looking for it for a while.
    Loving eBooks.

    abebooks is a great website to get older second hand books, esp. A.S. Neill.

    Hi — great blog. ( I found you by doing a google search for Chomsky quotes on education — thanks for those.)

    A couple of other things you might like: “Deschooling Society” by Ivan Illich, and “The Book of Learning and Forgetting” by Frank Smith. Check them out if you don’t already know them.

    I love it when monkeys speak. It’s just the damndest thing.

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
