<p>I just found out my MIL had John Holt as her 5th grade teacher.   She said he was incredibley fabulous, but was fired later in the year for being too progressive.   What a shame. </p>

<p>I've never actually read Holt <span><img alt="tomato.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/tomato.gif"></span>, but just by his reputation, I think that would be awesome.</p>

<p>He is a great author.  She he had  higfh standards and gave them more difficult material than they had been used to but presented it in such a way that the class was fun and inspiring.  She said all the students were so devestated to see him leave. </p>
