9780415248174: Alternative Approaches to Education: A Guide for Parents and Teachers

This book is designed to give parents and teachers information on the alternative education options available in the UK. It covers three main areas:
Outside the state system: small schools; Steiner Waldorf schools; Montessori schools; democratic schools and other schools with alternative philosophies
Doing it yourself: setting up a small school or learning centre; educating at home; flexible schooling
Alternatives within the state system: how some state schools are finding different ways of working
The values, philosophies and methods of each alternative are described, including the first-hand experiences and accounts of children, teachers and parents. There are answers to common questions and useful sources of further information.
This accessible and informative book is the ideal introduction for parents deciding how best to educate their children. It will be of interest to teachers looking to build their knowledge of different education philosophies.

'This book is the ideal introduction for parents deciding how best to educate their children. It will also be of interest to teachers looking to build on their knowledge of different education philosophies.' - Oxfam Bulletin
