Wow!  I have never seen or heard John Holt -only read his books.  I was amazed to see this recording of him on TV.  Still watching, but pause to share …

Cool, I'll have to come back another time to watch, but I certainly will! Thanks for posting.

I miss the Donahue show.  Thanks for sharing.  Noticed that this is Pat Farenga's "channel", and there are several other interviews with John Holt available.


Give me a few minutes while I caffeinate.

OMG, I can't believe that was recorded when I was in university ... it looks about a hundred years old! I guess it's more than thirty years now... gosh.

 

I felt all the obvious annoyance about uninformed socialization stuff. But the observation the 15-year-old homeschooler made about the attitude she experiences attending high school part-time, the disinterest in learning, the negativity, that's my kids' world right now. It's so true, and it's exactly what is driving them crazy.
