Harvard EdCast: Learning Without Liberty

Education of its youth should be a priority of this or any country, but compulsory schooling is absolutely not the way to go about it, says Cevin Soling, Ed.M.'13. In his recent book, The Student Resistance Handbook, Soling aims his argument against schooling directly at students, providing them with the strategies to constructively rebel against the schools that he calls "oppressive environments" so that they can be free to pursue their educations.

In this edition of the Harvard EdCast, Soling speaks about the goals of his book and explains his controversial opinions on the role of schools in the education of American youth.
