Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Parents looking for alternatives to their neighborhood public school for any reason—cultural, religious, ideological, or personal—will find a wide range of information here." —MultiCultural Review

"An unbiased presentation."— Library Journal

Library Journal
This book is meant to be a consumer's guide to 22 forms of alternative education available to children whose parents choose not to send them to public schools. It also offers an historical perspective of American education, along with the history behind each of the specific alternatives. Koetzsch, senior writer for Natural Health magazine and founding editor of Renewal: A Journal for Waldorf Education, first deals with current important topics such as conflict resolution and multicultural education, pairing them with appropriate alternative programs. Then he details each form of education, including where such schools can be found and resources for more information. An unbiased presentation that will be a welcome addition to most public libraries.Terry A. Christener, Hutchinson P.L., Kan.
