AUTHOR

Nearing, Scott, Kohl, Herbert

SUMMARY

Best known for his paean to self-sufficiency, "Living the Good Life," which became a bestseller that "Newsweek" called "an underground bible for the city-weary," Scott Nearing was also a high-profile public advocate for education reform at the start of the Progressive era. Lamenting that public schools had failed to keep up with societal changes, Nearing traveled the country during the early decades of the twentieth century, documenting schools that had abandoned a traditional authoritarian stance in favor of child-centered practice. Now, in the first decade of the twenty-first century, the vignettes, interviews, and speculations on school restructuring, curriculum development, and educational reform that he offered in "The New Education" a century ago are relevant once again.Nearing, Scott is the author of 'The New Education: Progressive Education One Hundred Years Ago Today', published 2007 under ISBN 9781595582096 and ISBN 1595582096.
