The Modern School Movement


Based on extensive interviews with former pupils and teachers, this Pulitzer Prize-nominated work is a seminal investigation into the potential of educational alternatives. Between 1910 and 1960 anarchists across the United States established more than twenty schools where children might study in an atmosphere of freedom and self-reliance in contrast to the formality and discipline of the traditional classroom. A lively historical tale including such participants as Emma Goldman, Margaret Sanger, Alexander Berkman, and artist Man Ray.
