Yes! Carl Rogers may have left us but his words, ideas and sympathies live on in his students – I was inspired by this book and will never stop thanking him for his guidance! (I think that there is a third edition now).
This is the text that championed a revolutionary approach to education that changed the way we teach our children. Now, in the Third Edition, it’s challenging the status quo with twenty years of evidence that defies current thinking. Five exciting new chapters focus on issues of importance now and in the future–learning from children who love school; researching person- centered issues in education; developing the administrator’s role as a facilitator; building discipline and classroom management with the learner; and person-centered views of transforming schools. Freedom to Learn, Third Edition is written in the first person, with two goals in mind–to aid the development of the minds of children and young persons, and to encourage the kinds of adventurous enterprises being carried out daily by dedicated, caring teachers in creative classrooms and supportive schools throughout the nation.
