About the book:

John Holt promoted the homeschooling movement (which he originally called "unschooling") when he published the first issue of GWS in August 1977. Here, for the first time under once cover, are the first twelve issues of GWS, fully indexed and organized to help you browse or research its vast archive of ideas about how adults and children can learn together in their homes and communities. These first issues are particularly important because they contain much writing by Holt (he edited and contributed to every issue in this volume) about the how and why of unschooling that is not published anywhere else, as well as hundreds of firsthand accounts by unschooling's earliest practitioners that resonate with even more meaning today.
