Originally published in 1960, Summerhill became an instant bestseller—and a must-read on the topic of education for an entire generation. Now, this thoroughly expanded and revised edition reinstates the revolutionary "free school" traditions begun by Summerhill's founder, A. S. Neill
As American education continues to lag behind the rest of the world, this new edition is more timely than ever. Today's children face struggles far greater than any previous generation; educators must now teach them to make choices for themselves, and to learn from the outcome of their decisions.
Summerhill School is a classic work that presents an essential treatise challenging us to rethink our approach to education—and to rethink childhood itself.
