Synopsis
Behind the simmering discontent in our schools, there lies a fundamental question about the efficacy of conventional teaching - what is the connection between learning and life?. A major pioneer in exploring this field has been Dartington Hall, which since the early 1920s has been a seedbed for experimentation in "learning by doing" that embodies a broader vision of the relationship between the individual and the community and that truly attempts to equip young people for a full life in the world. Inspired by a vision of restored wholeness, the radical experiments described in this book range from the de-schooled community of the 1920s to the pioneering work experience schemes of the 70s and 80s and from the projects for school leavers in the 60s to the College's present-day commitment to the training of artists in the community. "Beyond the Classroom" is interesting reading for anyone looking for fresh ideas and approaches to the perennial questions of education.
