GROWING WITHOUT SCHOOLING 42 Many GWS readers will have gath­ ered that I have had some kind of more or less serious health problem, and now that it seems to be well resolved, let me give a brief report. Early in the morning of Sept. 26 I underwent surgery to have removed from the inside of my left thigh a malignant tumor, which by that time had become quite large. The surgery was completely successful; since the defensive systems of the body had man­ aged to isolate or encapsulate the tumor, my very able surgeon, Dr. Bernie Siegal, was able to remove all of the tumor without having to remove any muscle tissue. By now I am virtu­ ally completely recovered from the operation. As I write this I am visit­ ing Nancy, Bob, Ishmael, and Vita Wallace (Ishmael is at this moment about five feet away, working with great energy, concentration and skill on one of Debussy's very difficult preludes for the piano), in the very hilly town of Ithaca, NY, and with them I have been taking long walks up and down these hills with no ill effects. I have even done a little mild jogging. I expect that within a week or two I will be able to resume the weightlifting which for many years has been one of my staple exer­ cises, and within a few months I should be back in top (for me, at least) physical shape. The experience has been for me at times difficult and worrisome (though never particularly painful) and in many ways very instructive, since I had not been in a hospital since I was a child. I plan to write more about it in the next issue of GWS. For the time being, I want to thank, as best I can, the many people who have helped me during this health crisis and my recovery. Let me begin with my surgeon, Dr. Bernie Siegal (Surgical Associates, 40 Temple St, New Haven CT) who is both a very skillful and conservative surgeon, a strong believer in not cutting out any more than necessary, and a most unusual doctor, a supporter of uncon­ ventional therapies, including medita­ tion and visualization, and of the essential principle that the patient must be the principal active agent in his own healing. Just meeting him for the first time gave me enormous confi­ dence that I was in good hands, and a measure of my trust in him may be that though (by choice) I had only a spinal anaesthetic, along with some kind of muscle relaxer, I slept through the whole operation. Among my friends I am somewhat famous for be­ ing able to sleep anywhere, but this may set some new kind of record. I also want to thank my friends and colleagues in the office, Pat, Donna, Steve, and Ross, who not only carried on very capably with very limited or no input from me, but also

helped me in countless other ways in the difficult weeks before I went into the hospital, and afterwards as well. Also my friend, neighbor, and editor Merloyd Lawrence. Also Kit Finn, who along with my office col­ leagues and Mary Van Doren, did the immense job of cleaning up my apart­ ment, a task I could never have done alone, even in the best of health . Kit also had me stay at her house for a few days during my recovery. And thanks to Mary and Tom Maher, whom I also visited for a very pleasant week. Thanks also to John and Stella Boston and to Sally and Bob Shallen­ berg in California, who helped me dur­ ing my visit to the Hoxsey Clinic in Tijuana (of which I will write more) . Above all, thanks to Mary Van Doren, who went with me to the hos­ pital in New Haven, and who for three weeks after I left the hospital, when I could not possibly have taken care of myself, housed, fed, and very cap­ ably nursed me at her home in Quincy, with the help of her husband Mark and Mark's father Jim. I can never thank her, and all of them, enough for all this help, which contributed 50 much to my recovery, and which made me won­ der how people manage to recover from serious illness who, unlike me, are not surrounded by such devoted and capable friends. --- John Holt SUCC ESSFUL DROPOUT From "The Future of Childhood"

... Bud McDougald, the late chair­ man of Argus Corporation, was occa­ sionally asked whether he regretted leaving school and entering adult life at the age of 14. "Biggest mistake I ever made," McDougald said. "I should have left when I was 12." ... HOMESCHOOLER AT COLLEGE From the Texas Home Educators

Newsletter, 11/84:

... On August 17, the CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS GROUP OF SAN ANTONIO hosted a workshop for new home educa­ tors in our area ... Many people want to know if it is possible for our children to go to college . We thought the person who could best answer that question was a young lady from this area who graduated at age 15 from her home school and began attending the University of Texas at San Antonio at age 16. She scored so high on her col­ lege entrance exam that she was given college credit for the first semester of English without taking the course. Not only was her information about getting into college helpful to these families, but her enthusiasm was very contagious. Parents were excited to see a teenager so thrilled with the home school experience ... NOTES FROM DONNA . The Big Day: The wedding on Nov. 11 went just as we r.oped - a large, friendly, informal party. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and Frank­ lin and I have enjoyed looking at the photos and listening to the tape of the contra danCing. Thanks for all the notes of good wishes on your letters and book orders' As soon as I finish this issue of GWS, Frank and I will be spending a week on Nantucket

as a delayed honeymoon. Plug for YOUNG CHILDREN: NATURAL LEARNERS: Chris Mayou wrote in the HOMESCHOOLERS OF WISCONSIN newslet­ ter, "I wish I could have read this when my two older kids were babies' It really is full of insightful, interesting, and comforting letters from GWS readers ... I found this great thought in a section titled THE DIGNITY OF CHI LDREN: 'Of course chi ld­ ren get in your way, but where are you going?' - great thought when you're setting priorities' If you've got kids under six years of age, even if you think you've read it all, I guarantee you'll find this interest­ ing reading. It would be a good gift, too." Thank you, Chris, for this chance to remind readers about this GWS supplement. The booklet costs $2, or $1.50 each for orders of two or more. Large Conference: Oral Roberts Univers~ty hosted a "National Confer­ ence of Christian Home Educators" in September, and attorney John Eidsmoe tells us there were approximately 1200 paid registrants ($35 each or $50/couple) plus about 500 children. Tapes of the entire conference are available for $35 (address, 7777 S Lewis Av, Tulsa OK 74171). John's Coming Schedule: The only confirmed item at this time is the SPEAKING OUT tv Show in Toronto, Ontario, on Feb. 18, 1985. Of course, we are still continuing the Holt Asso­ ciates Open Houses on the second Thursday of each month, from 6-8 PM. Speaker's Bureau? Since John is interested in lightening his travel schedule so he has time for other things, he suggested that perhaps GWS could print a "Speaker's Bureau" on home education, as a way of encour­ aging others to fill this need. If you would like to speak to meetings, send us your name, address, phone, a brief description of yourself, and any other important information (dis­ tance you're willing to travel, fixed fee if any, special programs you can offer, etc.) --- Donna Richoux CA DISTRICT ADOPTS BUTTE PLAN Peggy Carkeet (CAl wrote:

It was painted aut by .our supt . that the prapased "cantract" wauld weed aut many peaple wha didn't sincerely wish t a t ea ch their awn children. He paint­ ed aut what a cammitment it is. In a way, he was steering .off the, as John puts it, "hippapotamus" questians. Sa far .only five families are enralled . The pragram is strict and defin­ itelya campramise, i.e., we get ta teach .our awn children, but must fol­ low the c ounty .outline. HOWever, there is a lat .of flexibility invalved - educational T.V . may be used, fi e ld trips, ~ hame resour­ ces; plus we get the advantage .of be­ ing able to use the county materials, films, rec a rds, etc. The supervising teacher is very flexible and laaded with helpful suggestions - she is nat push y and o bviausly laves children; she either visits the hame .or yau may meet her a t her office. Home-teachers (parents ) may attend caunty teacher warkshaps, and a camputer-warkshap is planned with camputer access for the children. I can't begin to say what a won­ derful pr a gram this is. Brent and I are a n our 16th day and are tharaugh­ ly enj a ying it. ...

When we first learned about the prapasal ta lawer the campulsary age in the summer, I was nat taa sure we wauld ce able ta fight it successful­ ly, mastly because sa many other things were happening and we simply didn't have much time ta spare. Laak­ ing back, I am astanished at how rela­ tively little wark it ta ak an my part ta set wheels in mation. First, I sent a letter ta the few lacal suppart graups in Mass. and ta the several ather natianal hame­ schoaling arganizatians, asking them ta spread the word. Then with the help .of valunteer Mary Pelrine, I pulled fram .our files all the mailing lists .of Massachusetts addresses ­ expired subscribers, baok customers, peaple wha had asked far infarmatian, etc. It came ta a little aver 1400 names. I wrate a letter which (1) .out­ lined the facts, (2) said that we at Halt Associates were a very small and busy office, and we cauld nat passi­ bly labby against this bill - any wri­ ting, phaning, .organizing, visits to legislatars, etc, would have ta come fram .others, and (3) included some encouraging clips fram GWS about the

successful defeats of such measures in Arizona and Cannecticut (#38 & #39). We're used ta daing bulk mail­ ings here, which made the whale project immeasurably easier than starting fram scratch. After the mailing ~as sent, I heard very little. Six peaple sent $10 and .one persan gave $100 ta help defray the casts of the mailing (about $300 - anyane 'else want ta help?). I learned fram a few ph .one calls and nates that some people like Karen Kimoall of the SOUTH SHORE HOME­ SCHOOLERS and Gail Gray and Martha Krawczyk of the PIONEER VALLEY SUPPORT GROUP were busy telling as many people as they could about the bill. I checked several times with the State House to find out the status of the legislation. It was Gail Gray who gat the letter from the Chairman of the House Education committee, dated Oct. 1, which reads in full: ... Thank you for contacting me about your concerns with the provi­ sions in House 5704 which would re­ quire children to attend school at age five. I have received a number of very thoughtful letters from parents who object to this element of the reform bill. Accordingly, I have reconsid­ ered my position and have decided to work with the House Committee on Ways and Means to delete the age five requirement. Nonetheless, I would like to explain why the Committee on Educa­ tion initially proposed this require­ ment. Quite simply, we wanted to assure that every child have the opportunity to experience the bene­ fits of a kindergarten program. We reviewed the wark of contemporary child development researchers and were very impressed by their conclu­ sions. In a nutshell, the researchers found that children who attend well­ planned programs before first grade are far more likely to adapt positive­ ly to the school environment and to succeed in school. Research documents that good early childhood education reduces later special education place­ ments and ultimately provides savings to taxpayers. I want to explain this to yau because our motive was not to prema­ turely separate children fram their parents, nor was it to establish a free babysitting service - as some of the letters I have received ~ave indicated. The Committee on Education wants to do what's good for children, but as your letter underscores, parents are ultimately in the best position to make this decision. Please be assured that I will work to remove these sections from the bill, and that I am grateful to you for empha­ sizing this point to me. Sincerely, James G. Collins [DR: 1 By calling the State House Nov . 5, I was able to establish that the age sections had indeed ceen taken out of the bill. I don't suppose we'll ever know how many letters were actually sent to state representatives, the gover­ nor, local papers, etc. My guess is that it was relatively few, less than a hundred. And if this is true, it is all the more exciting to think that a small number of mostly unorganized people can change the laws! I've talked about "The Power of Letter­ Writing" in GWS before (#33), but this has got to be the most direct

and personal experience I've had with it. Any of you who took part in this effort should feel proud. In fact, I'm sure what gave me to confidence to begin at all were the stories in GWS over the years from those of you in state after state who learned of proposed laws, usually anti-homeschooling laws (Arizona, Virginia, Wisconsin, Georgia ... ) and who organized, educa­ ted yourselves, and fought, usually managing not only to stop the harmful laws but even transform them into helpful ones. By doing so you have inspired me, and who knaws how many others. TENN. LAW RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL

From the newsletter of the HOME

EDUCATION ASSOCIATION OF TENNESSEE :

... On June 5, 1984, Judge Steve Bebb of the Criminal Court of McMinn County ruled Tennessee's Compulsory Attendance Statute unconstitutionally vague. Charles and Susan Moffat of Athens, TN had ceen criminally indict ­ ed ... for teaching their daughter at home through a home correspondence course from Pensacola Christian School. Judge Bebb dismissed the charge against the Moffats and ruled that the existing statute is s o vague and ambiguous that parents cannot realistically determine what consti�� tutes a "private school" under the law ... On June 25, 1984, Judge Jerald Ewell, Circuit Court Judge in Coffee County, ruled that (1) Home instruc­ tion complies with the Tennessee Com­ pulsory Attendance Statute; and (2) the statute is unconstitutional. Dan and Laurie Sain of Bradyville, TN were being criminally prosecuted for teaching their five children in a one-room schoolhouse built by Mr. Sain and his three sons. They built their schoolhouse in an attempt to comply with the school superinten­ dent's standards ... Laurie Sain not only has her master's degree in educa­ tion but is a former public school teacher and is certified to teach in Tennessee. Judge Ewell dismissed the charge against the Sains. . .. Larry Crain, an attorney with the Rutherford Institute of Tennes­ see, a state chapter of the national legal organization which is a Chris­ tian counterpart to the American Civ­ il Liberties Union, represented Charles and Susan Moffat ... Attorney Ed Falkowski of Fayetteville, TN, represented the Sains. [DR: Both are in our "Friendly Lawyers" list, p. 29, this issue.J In both of these court cases the point of ambiguity and vagueness in the law was that it could not be determined from the law whether a home school constitutes a legal, bona fide private schaol. Therefore, it would follow that to clarify this ambiguity a "clear" definiti.on must be given ... Bef.ore this session of the legis­ lature ended, a committee comp.osed .of five senat.ors and five representa­ tives was appointed t.o study the mat­ ter .of private sch.o.ols, including home schools, and to report by Febru­ ary .of 1985, to the legislature with its rec.ommendati.ons ... At the Aug. 17 meeting .of the joint study c.ommittee, B.ob Sharp, att.orney for the Department .of Educa­ ti.on, said ... "The state att.orney gen­ eral also believes the law t.o be un­ c.onstitutionally vague and has de­ clined t.o defend it on appeal ...

Although there is no significant flight from schooling yet, if nothing is done to correct the situation an increasing number of parents may with­ draw their children from any formal school and say that they are pro­ viding a home school ... The depart­ ment fully endorses a change in the laws so that both parents and public school officials will know for a cer­ tainty what is required in the educa­ tion of children." ... OTHER COURT NEWS The 11/84 newsletter of the TEXAS COALITION FOR HOME EDUCATION reports on a number of prosecutions of homeschoolers in that state: Billy Sutherland of Longview; Alex and Hannelore Chan of Duncanville; Tom & Ilona Dyson of Duncanville; Linda Hudson, Steve & Brenda Higgins, Billie and Janice Tuttle, and Dennis and Brenda Evans, all of Houston; two cases in Lampasas, and one case in La Porte. There are two cases being appealed to the Cou rt of Appeals: the Kings (Amarillo) and the Wells (El Paso). Two cases in Angleton, Burwell and Trower, have been indefinitely postponed pending the Court of Appeals rulings. On the other hand, Don Miller (TX), who wrote in GWS #40 about charges being dropped against a home­ schooling friend in Houston, writes, "I heard from our friend in Houston that the judge (County Court) sent a letter to the school district saying he didn't want homeschooling families prosecuted."

ARKANSAS: The state has been de­ bating what to do about homeschoolers since the Burrows decision in the State Supreme Court in May (GWS #40). GWS reader Agnes Ross told us that she phoned the Governor's office, introducing herself as a home schooler who would like to see a reasonable compromise worked out in the law, and that the officials seemed relieved and even excited by her call. They arranged to talk with her further after the November elections. FLORIDA: Ann Mordes writes, "Pam Murphree trom Tallahassee called the office of Dr. Pat Lamb to ask about the legislation [GWS #41] and protest a few things like testing and so forth. She found Dr. Lamb to be ex­ tremely cooperative and enthusiastic. Dr. Lamb said that she didn't see any way around the testing because the state needed to prove that none of the home-tutored children were tru­ ant.

" IOWA: Debbie Roney reported in the OKIDS newsletter: "On April 10th the nes-Hoines School Board made a recommendation to the Iowa School Board Legislative/Resolutions Commit­ tee that states ... 'the statute ... relating to private schools and home instruction should be clarified to empower the boards of directors ex­ pressly to pass on the instructional equivalency of individualized private instruction and to require such infor­ mation and testing necessary to ful­ fill that responsibility ... ' We feel the Iowa School Board will begin to lobby the legislature this fall to adopt this change in our statute ... " KENTUCKY: Ruth McCutchen writes, " . .. About the change in the law in Kentucky. The State Dept. of Ed. no longer approves private (thus, home ) schools through the application pro­ cess we'd been using. Now all one does is tell the local superintendent that one is starting a private school and give the names and addresses of its students ... We think the State Board may formulate some voluntary measures for approval or accredita tion ... Apparently, the law was changed in this past spring's legisla­ tive session. Nary a one of us was aware of the change until a month ago . .. " MARYLAND: The MARYLAND HOME EDU­ CATION ASSOCIATION reports a wide var­ iety of experiences with districts since the new state regulations went into effect (GWS #40), from coopera­ tion in some counties to disapproval and harassment in others. It also says the State Board of Education has proposed a bylaw to define a "school" as having 7 or more pupils who don't have the same parentage. MICHIGAN: State Representative Timothy Walberg responded to Pat Mont­ gomery's letter (GWS #41): "First of all I do not have any definite plans of submitting any home school legisla­ tion this year or next. My intention is however to have legislation ready to be introduced at the proper time or as a road block to legislation from 'the other side.' "Secondly, there has never been any attempt on my part to leave you, or any others who are vitally inter­ ested in homeschooling in this state, out of the legislative process ... The confidentiality of my drafting re­ quest has been kept only to assure that the Department of Education and others who would be antagonistic

toward our desires, be kept ignorant on any offensive plans on our part . "I have just received the bill draft back from the drafting ser­ vice ... and have found it to be total­ ly unacceptable ... It will be sent back immediately for changes ... "Though I strongly disagree with you that the vagueness of the present law has helped homeschoolers in Michi­ gan, be assured I am a supporter of the right for everyone to educate their children according to their dic­ tates ... " MISSOURI: Carol Brown "rites, "The interim committee met at the State Capitol in Jefferson City. Home­ schoolers gave testimony. It was very positive and members of the legisla­ tive committee seemed sensitive and receptive on the most part. They real­ ize they have a difficult task before them ... It looks like one option that might be feasible is for homeschool­ ers to take a standardized test and only minimum proficiency standards would be required. Parents stated that no standards should be set that . weren't expected from public school children . That seems safe enough ... " NEVADA: Miriam Mangione sent the instructions and forms prepared by two counties to comply with the state's recent homeschooling regula­ tions (GWS #40). Nye County had made up a self-explanatory three-page form; Clark County had put together a forbidding, highly repetitious 80­ page booklet' Miriam says, "Many of us feel that Clark County goes far beyond the state's regulations. We are forming a legal association so we will be in a better position to de­ fend ourselves ... We will also have all curriculums which are approved copied and kept on file so all new members will have a strong format to follow ... " Miriam later told us that the Clark Co. Director of Pupil Per­ sonnel has been helping homeschoolers to prepare their proposals, even loan­ ing them use of his secretary and copying rr,achine' ONTARIO: On July 19th, Anna Myers and Dora Force of the ONTARIO HOMESCHOOLERS met with three offi­ cials of the Ministry of Education, and were told that parents do not have to follow the Ontario currICu­ lum. A written philosophy, a set of goals for their children, and some indication that the goals are being reached, will be acceptable to show satisfactory instruction. PENNSYLVANIA: Peter Bergson writes, "Douglas Boelhouwer of the State Dept. of Education called me to ask if he could refer to me any par­ ents in eastern PA who wanted to know more about homeschooling. I said, 'Sure.' I used the opportunity to get a sense of the state's view of home­ schooling ... The difficulty is that the state (Boelhouwer and the regula­ tions) uses the term "school" in the conventional way ... If a family tries to go the private school route (inclu­ ding nonpublic nonlicensed/parochial) without the actual intent to be open to children from other families, they are not 1n compliance with the law as he sees it.

Thanks. - DR A FAMILY·RUN DAYCARE CENTER From Gretchen Spicer (WI), who wrote "Good Times, Awful Times," #30:

... The children have been abso­ lutely indispensable in the running of our small daycare center. A usual day around here is five kids under 2, a couple of 3- and 4-year-olds, our own 6-year-old, and a couple of other 6- and 7-year-olds after school. It is a nice workable number. We concen­ trate on being helpers to the child­ ren and try to have a really relaxed program with enough structure to pro­ vide se curity, but lots of free time for exploration. Meals are the only " i nterruptions" in the day. We rarely move groups of children arbitrarily fr om one place to another. When we go outside , usually one adult simply announces that they are going outside and anyone who wants to can come. Someone assists the youngest children into their coats as they express an interest in going out. Generally the whole group ends up outside in 15-20 minutes. The only time we interfere with children is when they are get­ ting hurt, or when they appear sad or u nhappy. The same policy of non­ interference that worked so well for home schooling is working ~eautifully f or day care. We pay Jessica (9) $2.50 each day for helping us with the children. She changes diapers, washes faces, carries fussy toddlers, plays house wi th the 3- to 6-year-old crew, puts babies to sleep, ~eads stories,

swings swings, in general everything we do - usually just as well. The kids are crazy about her. Jacob (13) and Seth (11) cook breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack every day. They also do all the dish­ es, set the tables, clean the kitchen and prepare special meals for infants or children with allergies. Addit i on­ ally, they do all the shopping and some of the menu planning. All the meals have to meet ' the USDA recommend­ ations and the boys are adept at mak­ ing sure they include sources of Vita­ min A, C, iron, etc. The meals are always on time, attractive and del i ­ cious. We pay each boy $2.50 / day for cooking. They plan it all themselves and manage their time very well. They go to the library every day between lunch and afternoon snack. Isaac (6 ) makes morning snack each day. He has to count how man y people need snack, prepare bottles for infants, get the right number o f graham crackers and ~aper cups, and carry the snack out. After snack he picks up the cups, carries the milk pitcher in, and wipes up the tables. He gets paid 50¢ a day and also d oes a very nice job. Vern (4 ) cleans the yard up ea c h day after the daycare children leave. He ~icks up all the balls and to ys and puts them in the storage box, parks all the trikes and riding t oy s and sweeps the patio. He o ften needs help, but makes a valiant attempt. He also gets paid 50¢ a day . The jobs provide the kids wi th a nice income, but more importantl y they realize that what they are d o ing is really necessary. They know h ow much we depend on them and seem t o like being part of the team. Boy, are they glad when the weekend comes. Home schooling is obviousl y a big plus for us in this situation. Surprisingly, all the "offi c ials" (daycare licensing people, social workers, psychiatrists, famil y ther­ apists) that we have come in contact with through the center and in re­ gards to our foster son, have been very supportive of and interest e d i n

Our GWS T-Shirt contest had sixty-six entries from readers of all ages. Each person in the office chose their favorites and we sent the four that received the most votes to the Zimmans, our T-shirt makers, and they de­ cided which of the four would reproduce best on their shirts. Since there were so many fine drawings from children and adults, we decided to offer a second $25 prize and have one adult winner and one child winner. The winners are Carol Krentzman (Adult Winner) of Massachusetts and Jody-Taj Finan­ Eshelman (age 6) of Virginia . Just because we divided the winners doesn't mean you must wear Carol's adult design if you buy an adult-size shirt. You can choose either design to go on your shirt, in your choice of the colors and materials listed here. Use the order form if you like, specify your choices, and send your check to GROWING WITHOUT SCHOOLING. Prices include postage. Remember, GWS gets to keep $1 for every T-Shirt sold. Thanks to all who participated for making our first T-Shirt contest a success! --- Pat Farenga

ly grown up 13-year- ol d boy holding a tiny baby. He is as tender, careful, and awed as his fa ther was on the day that he first held him. ... We aren't making a lot of money but it does pay all th e bills and we are able to live in a very large (2000 sq. ft.) home that we could not afford otherwise . Also it is wonderful to be able to purchase interesting toys, puzzles and books. We always have an adequate supply of nice art materials on hand and neat projects going on . Our s is a very child-centered life and we really enjoy it . There are he adaches, like parents that don't pay and endless paperwork, but by and large it seems to be the best thi ng we ha ve done to make a living so far . It is very sat­ isfying to feel that you are provid­ ing very good care to children whose parents for one reason or another can't care for them all the time. ... 1 was very glad to see sever­ al letters in GWS #39 about o rdinary children. Although I have been sing­ ing my kids' praises thr oughout this letter, and they do deserve the applause, my children are also very ordinary. They often fight, many times they are unreaso nable and demanding. Although they show much sympathy and concern for the daycare children, they often show little regard for each other's feelings. None of them is a genius. On the aver­ age they started to read at 8 to 9 years of age (with very little "teach­ ing"). They start many projects and leave the majority of them lying around the house until the y are de­ stroyed by younger children or simply disintegrate due to neglect. Only Jessica keeps her personal space neat without being asked to. Although they work wonderfully and competently for wages, they do little else without great complaint . But I am not in the least bit disappoin ted, and I don't consider "ordinary" bad or negative; in fact, I think it is wonderful. All I want for my children is for them to be ordinary, well-adjusted people, able to weather life's u ps and downs and make their way competently through the world . I for one am very content to be an ordina r y mother in an ordinary family ...

is really the only time he sits to write. He likes receiving letters in return. I've noticed, though, that when there's a real need for writing some­ thing he goes right at it, like when he made a sign at the trail leading to our outhouse next to the one I had made . Mine said, "OCCUPIED" on cne side and "UNOCCUPIED" on the other. His said, "Cedar · is at the outhouse" on one side and "Cedar is not at the outhouse" on the other. Today I was busy pouring grain into the trash cans out at the barn and I asked Ce ~a r to put ~asking tape on the lid of each can and wri te what was in it so that ocr housesitter would know ~l ha tis ~/ha t ,' [-l'n Eo he comes next ~eek to look af ter th i ngs while we go camping . I was in a h urr y to get our cow in with her calves and to go back to the house to the bread that was rising and ready to punch down . Cedar clearly saw that I needed his help to make things go quic kl y. So I spelled cet the names of each grain as he quickly wrote them on the tap~, never hesitatin~ or mentioning how he-aronOC-Ieer-li e it as he often does when I sUSfest he write. -----y~een a Slml ar pattern with his desire to read. He loved reading out the names of trucks as he dis­ covered each new one over a year ago, and if there are directions to some­ thing he really wants to know, he works at it with determination. But to sit and read j ust to practice, as with writing - no, he'd rather help make bread or fix a fence. To be involved in a real everyday activity as opposed to a contrived situation makes so much sense to me that I can unde r stand his attitudes ... Telling time has been so much fun and so spontaneous since Cedar bought a watch for himself when he turned 7. Since I don't wear a watch and we're often out worki~g away from the house I ask what time it is when I'd really like to know. Lots of times I need to know "How long till milking?" and he's always got a reply. A lot more interesting than those pages in workbooks with lots of pictures of clocks to fill in' ... And from Wisconsin :

REAL-LIFE LEARNING Lynn McCulloch (CA) wri tes:

... Cedar (7) loves helping me with almost any job I have to do here on the ranch . .. He's especially fond of anything that requires physical energy: unloading hay or feed sacks, hauling wood, digging in the gard en, working with our sheep ... He is not fond of sitting down t o wri te. He works slowly at it and diligently when it's a letter to someone - which

. . . One of our 9-year-old's jobs is to sort the canceled checks and read them off to me as I balance the checkbook. I hope that soon she will be able to handle the entire process without my help. We ere full time dairy farmers, so this means she is working with numbers in the thousands and ten thousands. She is also learn­ ing economics and getting an idea of how much money it takes to support a family and run a business. She often says things 1 ike, "What?' It takes that much money to buy seed co rn'" or "We spent that much money at the gro­ cery store?" ... HOME BUSINESS Carol Krentzman (MA ) writes:

... Last year my husband quit his job as a computer store manager to be­ come a full-time Shaklee products dis­ tributor. We now have our own home business' We made a small bedroom upstairs into an office, and we keep the stock on shelves in the basement. Jenny (7), Nellie (4), and Sam (2) help my husband receive shipments, unpack them, and stock the shelves. They pack orders together and take

inventory together. It is a very real life experience for us all and wonder­ ful change of lifestyle. David is no longer rushing to make a train in the mo~ning and gone all day. He is in and out ~ost of the day with meetings and 3PDointments. The children know where he is, what he's doing, and sometimes even accompan y him. ~ow that Sam is older and very happy to go off with his daddy and big sis­ ters, I am able to take on a more active role ' in the business, too. We also help David with his mailings (s tamping, folding and labeling). We had purchased a home compu­ ter, TRS-80 Model III, a few years ago, and when we decided to start a Shaklee business we got a printer to go with it. We now use it mostl y for word processing and keeping track of business records. Jenny and Nellie spend rr.any long hours playing Shaklee. They have lots of empty containers which they set up in displays. Lately Jenny's been say­ ing , "Excuse me, but I've got to go do my paperwork'" And off she'll go to work on her papers ... SINGLE PARENT: UPDATE From Lynne Norris (IN) - see "A Single Parent's Year," GWS #36:

... Without homeschooling I could never have accepted the job I now have, which is back at my old stand of teaching theater skills at a uni­ versity level. This kind of job de­ mands teaching during regular hours and rehearsing in the evenings. In other words, it's double shifting. As a single parent, I would never get to see my son if I had to pay caretakers for all that time, and it would wipe out the small profit I am making. This is the first above-the-poverty­ line job I've had since 1975 and I am not giving it up so Daniel can fit into conventional hours. At least this way we get to have dinner togeth­ er and catch moments in the office together. Daniel is barely noticed by any­ one at the office. He stays in my own little cubbyhole and does his work. When I was directing at another col­ lege this past month, he was free to roam that space. However, he ended up being a go-fer for my technician and a bookho1der when I needed one (this is for an Ionesco piece; no small feat for a lO-year-old), and my House Manager on performance nights. I know that many people don't think this is on-the-job training, but the theater is a proving ground for developing responsibility, punctuality, cour­ tesy, and survival under pressure. Daniel has also been producing some wonderful adventures on our cassette recorder, which may also be the result of theatrical exposure. He is also deep into coin collecting and has rejoined the bowling team he was on last year ... TEENS AT HOME More from Gretchen Spicer (WI):

... In response to "Teens At Home," GWS #41: I always assumed that the kids would choose to enter school at around 12 or 13 as many of our friends' kids did. However, Jacob at almost 14 has no interest in going to school. And what a shame it would be now that he is really becoming capa­ ble and mobile and able to use all the resources the community ha s to

offer. We live in a small t own and he is able to ride his bike all around the surrounding area. He thinks nothing of riding 10-12 miles to the next town to play tennis and riding back an hour later. He has really similar interests to the kids mentioned in #41. He baby­ sits a lot. The parents say he is great and really appreciate that he is available at any time. He has studied for the G. E.D . , and plans to take achievement tests at the public school next week (entirely his choice). He often pursues some sub­ ject he is interested in, going to the library at least once a day. Right now he is in Chicago ... His 7-year-old cousin adores him and Jacob had promised to come for his birthday, and so he did - arranging his own transportation, collecting money from everyone in the family to purchase a birthday present, etc ... From John Boston (CAl: ... It has been 5 years since we allowed Sean (15) the freedom to learn in our home and community . .. At times we have an adult friend and at others a pre-teen "Why-can't-I?-Every­ one-else-is" child. But that's par for this period in his growth. ... Sean has developed the abili­ ty to get along with anyone he choos­ es. He is active in our church's Youth Group. He sings at Sunday Mass in the Youth Choir and is well on his way to being confirmed and a full adult member of our church community. Sean's Youth Advisors have commented to me on more than one occasion how special and loving he acts. ... He has contemplated going back to school but has found other means of accomplishing the same want. For instance, when the high school would not let him take Auto Shop with­ out signing up as a full-time stu­ dent, he enrolled in a Regional Occu­ pational Program auto course, even though he was below age 16. He now attends a weekly class session, with hands-on training on our old truck and car, and spends three mornings a week at a local auto parts house. This "work station" at the parts house he arranged himself through his dealings with the manager. Last year, Sean wanted to find out how he would do if he went back to high school. Our Kaiser Group Health Insurance program ooffers a school testing service and the Kaiser school psychologist gave him the bat­ tery of tests, at Sean's re~uest . They even came to our home or part of the test. Sean found out that he could not do the memorization work schools require but the psychologist told him his level of abilities were at a college entrance level. if he wished to enter an institution he would have to study up on memorizing times tables, dates, and other test­ passing skills. Sean reads out loud from the Bible at our adult Renew Group, when called upon, and does better than some of the adults. Sean's math has been learned from metric conversions and working on his Honda motorcycle, and his checking account. His history lessons come from working on a WW II Jeep (that may not seem like history to us over 50, but to him it's ancient history). Sean isn't much into the fine arts. He can weld, so he designed and built a 3-wheel go-cart for the neigh­ bor's children. He fixes toys and bikes for all the kids around here. GRO~ING

He listens to his favorite rock music (which turns me off) and does enjoy the beauty of nature when we go camp­ ing, fishing, or cross-country skiing. He's passed the test for his learner's permit and can drive with a licensed criver . Sean helped up drive to San Luis Obispo this fall, a trip of over 800 miles, to see friends and visit the California missions. He drives his 82-year-old grandfather allover town and can't wait to get his own license . . . And from Star Fishel-Lingemann {CAl, age 15~: ... 1 have three pen pals, in Ken­ tucky, Montana and New Mexico, and we all found each other through GWS' It has been great fun having pen pals. Not only have I made three very special friends, but I have learned a lot too. I think some of the most important things I have learned are communicating tetter on paper, and understanding rryself better through writing and that anyone, of any type or lifestyle, can be a homeschooler' I guess for a while I thought that all homeschoolers were like ~y sib­ lings and my cousins and young aunts and uncles (all under sixteen and all homeschoolers who live very alterna­ tive lifestyles) . All of my pen pals are very different from each other and from me .. . For a long time I've been frus­ trated that I didn't have any contact with kids my age and the nearest home­ schooler my age (who is luckily my best friend of ten years') lives fifty miles away. So cut of despera­ tion, I almost went to high school this year. Now I'm really glad I didn't because it's never good to act out of desperation. But, though I had cecided r,ot to go to high school full time, I still felt the need for some social contact and more intellectual challenges. So now I am enrolled in an independent program through the local continua­ tion high school . I go one day a week and bring my work home . I am really enjoying it. I'm getting a chance to interact with kids my age and the principal of the school is a really neat guy. He has founded his sc hool on a lot of principles that support homeschooling. I have not been intel­ lectually challenged though' Most of the work I get is pretty much a bunch of boring busywork . At first I was kind of hesitant because I wasn ' t sure about going to a continuation high school but I have seen that for whatever reasons each of the kids are there (and I don't know most of the reasons), they are all just people underneath. It took rre a long time to get over the idea that if I went to school I would be betraying or fail­ ing homeschooling. That was because I identified with homeschooling and thought it was something that had to be done. It is only now that I have stopped worrying that I wasn't 10inR enough of the things "home schoo ers do, that I am actually able to see that home schooling is not dOih~ any­ thing, it is bei g , letting t 1ngs flow, something have had trouble with the past few years . My family has formed a "school" with a group of most of the home schoolers in our area . We meet once a week to work on a specific project. We have done pottery, basketmaking, cooking and gardening, and I have started riding the horses owned by the family whose house we meet at . . .

P.S . I showed the principal of t he continuation school a copy of GWS and he was greatly impressed. He's always saying how well educated I am . .. BACK TO HOMESCHOO LING From Margie McArthur {CAl:

... We are going tack to unschool­ ing after a year back in school which was a hassle for all of us and very stressful. Abigail had been really set on doing it, so we did. She learned a lot in school - not much of it academic - mostly stuff like how powerless and small she was, how miserable it was to go out to P.E. in 100+ degrees and smoggy weather (just because those were "the rules"), how to adjust to a bad-tempered teacher without passing out from fear each time they had a confrontation. She made no long-lasting or true friends as she had hoped she would. All in all, it was an "educational" experi­ ence but not in the way we had hoped it would be . .. PART-TIME SC HOOL From Paula Sapphire in New York:

... We home-schooled for 2~ years and then due to family problems we began a part-time (3 days) public school arrangement with the Ithaca schools. Joah (12) and Shona (8) do beau­ tifully and everyone is amazed at their self-discipline, sense of responsibility and exuberance for learning. I'm sure they teach a lot to others by their example. However, school still has many drawbacks, most­ ly social . . . I'd like to check into correspon­ dence programs since if J & S stay home this year I have to work and be away 2 or 3 days a week and want them to have an independent structure ... LIFE AT HOME From Kathleen Hatley in Oklahoma:

. . . This year a homeschooling neighbor joins us two days a week. His mother is multi-lingual, so we are all studying Spanish together. The small group format for learning a language has generated some interest­ ing activities, such as working with the Cuisenaire rods, in Spanish' We are also playing simple board games, such as ~emfry, in Spanish. Asi e rom the language studies, we do big art projects together, such as tie-dying and linoleum block print­ ing. The whole group of boys are studying Tae Kwon Do a total of five hours a week, and all are playing on local soccer teams together. ... Our two older boys are respon­ sible for the homestead rabbit warren this year. Steve (ll~) is working for money cleaning up the job sites of his dad's log home building business.

He is proving to be a good example of the child who learns to write before he learns to read ­ every day he wants to dictate sen­ tences to me and re-copy them many times a day.

She's an excellent gymnast - some of the tricks she's learned scare me, like when she tries a back handspring on a 4" wide balance beam. She loves math, but s h e revolts when I try to push. A few days ago she wanted to work on math - I decided (that's a fatal mis­ take) that she was probably ready to work on ratios. So, for a starter, I gave her a few problems that could be easily worked in her head (If you are 5 feet tall and your shadow is 2~ feet long, how tall is a tree whose shadow is 30 feet long?) She immed­ iately grasped the concept and came up with the right answer, really proud of herself for discovering it. But when I tried to write down the steps in logical order, so that she could see clearly what she had done and do it on more difficult problems, she balked - "Mommy, you're pushing me. I'm going out to play." Later that evening, though, she asked me to go over it again, and this time she understood not only the ratios, but a lot of algebra that was needed to ex­ plain why the ratios work ...

... About our favorite topic ­ our homeschooling experiences over the past two years. Prior to being homeschooled, our three children went to an alternative school in Yellow Springs, Ohio. In many ways, it was the ungraded, self-directed learning experience we had always wanted for them. But when we took them out, we discovered the advantages of home­ schooling that no school, no matter how good, has to offer. We got our children back. And the relief of the financial burden of three kids in pri­ vate school was an added plus - we didn't realize how much that hurt until i~was gone. I can't talk about homeschooling in general - it's a different story for each of the kids.

had never pushed and had faith that the children would learn when they were ready. I knew testing my chil­ dren would be a disaster so I began searching for help. It seemed that people said different things - some said they couldn't test, others said they could, some said let them test. I ran into a civil rights worker who contacted my superintendent and arranged for a meeting where we would discuss the matter. The outcome of the meeting was that I had about three months to have my children tested on my own or he would take me to court. I was frantic. My ten-year-old son had just learned to read - I began "teaching" when we had our first encounter with the authorities. I was sincerely afraid he would be on kindergarten level if tested. I enrolled in CLONLARA and Pat Mont­ gomery took care of our problems by talking with our superintendent. It was a lifesaver in our case. The superintendent has never said another word since he talked with Pat Mont­ gomery. He didn't make us test, I chose to for my own curiosity. I got textbooks and the children are working in them. After a year of somewhat structured curriculum, they tested above their age levels on the CAT. I couldn't believe it (I think standards must be quite low). I am firmly convinced in waiting to teach - especially reading. In 1~ years' time ~son learned to read and was on-stn-grade level (spelling 9.5 leVel)' Besides-tnat, he loves to read. He will sometimes read all day long. I really hate to be structured. I am more lax now that they have been tes ted ... LEARNING TO READ AT9 A reader writes:

... Rose, 9, is learning to read. It is very exciting watching her dis­ cover this world of reading and wri­ ting at her own pace, with a little help when she needs it. This last sum­ mer I asked cur neighbor friend, who is 9, to teach Rose to read. I gave her one dollar for half an hour. She did this three times, taught Rose to read three books, and now Rose is off and rolling on her own. Since then she has been spending more time wri­ ting and has learned all her letters by heart with only one lesson from me (I do not pressure the children to learn things they do not want to, knowing that when they are ready they will pick it up rapidly, and it's true). Last week she asked a friend to teach her some new words and now she's been writing them by heart on many of her pictures ... Rose taught herself math with only two questions to me. Two ques­ tions and two answers, and now she adds, subtracts, multiplies, and counts by 3, 5, 10, etc. When she was seven she asked, "Mom, how many months till my birthday?" I said, five. She said, "How many months in a year?" I said 12 and then she thought a little and replied, "Then my birth­ day was 7 months ago'" And ever since she's been accumulating more and more math facts, through playing with and spending money, talking to friends, listening, and playing with a Speak & Math occasionally. ...

self-initiated questions about God, planning for peace, weaving, sewing, and just learning through doing. It is so amusing to come upon Rose and her younger sister discussing numbers or how to spell cat, so serious they are. Recently my 11-year-01d told my parents that he wanted to improve his spelling, learn handwriting, improve his math and hav~ more structure. When my mother told me this as proof that I was failing, at first I did feel like a failure until I realized that this is what self-direction is all about. He knew what he needed and was asking for it - fine, now we know what his program is. For him to know what he needed is to me a success story ...

Sometimes certified teachers ask how they can become involved with homeschoo1ing. Here's a splendid let­ ter from Paula King (CA) on the subject: ... Nancy, Ian's mom, answered an ad I had placed the summer after Ian's 4th grade year . She wanted me to tutor him in reading. She was desperate for him to read. After talk­ ing with her, I interviewed Ian. "What's your problem?" I asked, "that your mom wants me to tutor you?" "I can't read," he said. "Do you want to read?" "Yes," he said. "Do you want me to tutor you?" "Yes." "Fine. I will take you three days a week for an hour each session. You will pay your tutoring fee." "What? No, my mom will pay you." "No, I'm not tutoring your mom. You will pay me to learn how to read if you want to learn to read and you will trust that I know what I'm doing and you'll work at learning to read." (I had, by the way, discussed this plan with his parents and already had their approval.) At this pOint we had a long pause in the interview. Then Ian said, "I don't have much money." "How !T,uch a llowance do you get each week?" "Two dollars." "How much of that two dollars are you willing to spend to learn to read this summer?" After another long silence he said, "25¢ each session." "Fine. I'll accept a tutoring fee of 25¢ each session." Then we had another silence as Ian sat studying me. Finally he said, "Do I pay this money all at the first for the whole summer or do I pay you 25¢ each time I come?" "Your choice," I said. "OK. I'll pay you 25¢ every time I come because if I paid it all to you now and then I missed some ses­ sions I would have wasted my money." We smiled. I didn't know what Ian's real problem in school was, but in life I knew already he was going to make it. Early in his fourth grade year, Ian was startled to discover that most of the other students in his pub­ lic school class could read the his­ tory and science books, etc . He couldn't. Although he'd gone to a "special" class for 30 minutes to one hour a day for a year, he hadn't real­ ly connected that occurrence to an inability to read (as odd as it seems). The school's inefficiency may be the cause for his confusion be­ cause he'd also been sent on the first day of third grade to a first grade classroom for reading and they left him in there for math (ne-is an excellent math student). That went on for a good portion of the year. So, I expect he just marked the whole thing up to the school being all-powerful and capricious. He felt powerless and simply went where they told him. He saw no connection between school and learning. He spent most of his time daydreaming out of boredom.

When Ian started with me, I had a conference with his special reading teacher. She reported that Ian could read, but very slowly, one word at a time, and that he had no retention or comprehension of what he read. She felt he was just mentally slow and that his comprehension would always be poor. Her method of teaching him reading in third and fourth grade was strictly phonetic - one sound, one word at a time. Interestingly, she saw no connection between her method ­ and Ian's specific reading problem. Ian was tense about reading. He was inconsistent. Sometimes he couldn't read the word "and." So, we settled into a summer in which Ian typed on my typewriter and I read to him. We talked a lot, just chatted, getting to like each other and gain­ ing trust even though those weren't the reasons we were talking. As it got closer to time to be­ gin fifth grade in public school, I could see Ian start to close down and I figured he was worried. An idea began to form - I am a certified teacher. Why couldn't I form a pri­ vate school and let Ian just keep coming to school here? My first child was under six months old but I figured we could easily work around that. We'd just include r.er in what­ ever was going on. All the time I was looking at this possibility I didn't mention it to Ian. Finally, a week before school started I called every­ one together and ~resented the possi­ bility. "Maybe we'll fail, but could it be any worse than school?" I asked. Everyone was speechless, then laughing. Ian had been at his parents for weeks, "Why can't I just keep going to Paula's for school? Why do I have to go back?" So he just didn't go back and a one-year experiment turned into three years of hard work for Ian but in a relaxed atmosphere ... For the past three school years he has come to Kingwood School as my only actual stu­ dent (two others are registered and are home schooled by their mother). Ian spent two days a week at Kingwood and three days a week studying at home. Our goal, because it's what his parents wanted, was to get him back into public school on a par with or ahead of his class. With this in mind, I used the math and spelling books that were being used in his school. I supplemented them with Cui­ senaire rods and the Curriculum Pro­ ject math program, math puzzle books, books on logic; and in spelling I took the book, LET'S READ and created what I hoped was a logical spelling program that would assist Ian's read­ ing, too. For reading, I continued to read to him extensively from books like CHARLOTTE'S WEB, CHARLIE AND THE CHOC­ OLATE FACTORY, THE CHO COLATE TOUCH, etc. - whate v er I thought he'd be interested in but couldn't yet read himself. Eventually, we read to each other. First, a paragraph each, later a page each, still later a chapter each. He crossed into being a reader nearly without thinking a bout it. I also plowed through bookstores buying anything I thought he could read with­ out being insulted by it. My guiding thought was, "Ian is a bright, curi­ ous kid tempo rarily trapped by a thought that he can't read." I put all these books out and they were on every reading level, but hea v ily weighted to interesting and fairly easy. ( However, as Ian on c e pointed out, "big print does not necessarily mean easy words." He said teachers

generally share this misconception.) ... His self-image had been badly damaged by school. The only reason it survived at all I figure is because he was so oblivious to most of what was going on at school - he just spent a lot of time waiting for re­ cess and to go home. Also, he has loving and supportive parents who knew he was a perfectly normal compe­ tent kid in spite of what the school was saying. In working with his self-concept (which sounds like a formal program I sat down and planned but was really just intuitive and came out of liking him) I told him all the neat parts of him I saw: "You ask marvelous questions," "You have a lot of insight into people," "You're pretty perceptive," etc. I also told him he could read. "Can you read this word?"Iasked. "Yes." "Great, you obviously can read, Ian. We're not working on-a new SKITl. We're simply improving. We all improve our reading skill constantry­ usually by how frequently we read, using various books, magazines, news­ papers, and so on." Once he dropped the belief that said, "I can't read," we were over a major hurdle. One day he read a whole book in one sitting (a little book - so what?). Casually I pOinted out it was great to complete a whole book at one time. He ~as astounded and overjoyed. He took it home and read it to his mom and dad in one sitting, he read it to his little sister. Yea' Ian can read. In the three years Ian read books, magazines, and newspapers with total comprehension which often in­ cluded penetrating questions and com­ ments about the author's intention. We used many of the READER'S DIGEST educational books for reading skills, science, and social studies. They are fascinating and informative. Ian did work hard and long hours. I assigned his work. He seldom had a free day. In general I was go­ ing against my own educational philo­ sophy of "let the kids learn in their own time and in their own way and I'll be there as a resource person to be used by them when they want." Each year we thought he'd re-enter public school the next year and we were work­ ing on our goal of having him ready to do that. Ian knew all of this. In one sense, I think our three years were a failure. Ian never took full responsibility for his learning be­ cause I was the planner. Even though he was willing to be pushed, I still had to push him. That's not education (self-education). It was educational for me though. It's hard to quit "be­ ing a teacher" after "teaching" for a number of years. My own children (4~ and two who are 15 months) will be home schooled and I've learned now that it doesn't work for me if I push and try to "teach." - - Every year Ian went skiing with us for a few weeks. During that time we did very little formal work - most­ ly skied and read. These were our best times for both of us. Ian is starting back to public school as an eighth grader this school year. This summer he decided to build a go-cart. He studied an article on it for a few minutes, then minus the book, gathered some materi­ als together and built a perfectly useable cart out of scraps of materi­ al. He is able to intelligently dis­ cuss almost any subject from reincar­ nation to auto mechanics with a ques­ tioning mind. He is poised and self­ confident with all ages of people. He relates appropriately to my babies

and to all adults I've seen him with. He believes in himself. He's realis­ tic in his understanding of himself. He knows he skis better than he spells. He doesn't seem to waste time or energy bemoaning the fact. He knows he can change things in his life if he chooses. (He asked for a spelling book this summer saying, "I want to learn to spell.") He is lov­ ing and compassionat~ toward people (which can only come from a positive self-image, I think). By the way, his "P.E." program during the past three years has been karate (he complained the other kids talked and fooled around during les­ sons - their pattern from school, right?) and playing racquetball with his dad. I saw Ian this summer and said, "Ian, I'm afraid you'll lose yourself in school, forget who you are." "Don't worry, Paula, I know who I am," he replied. ... At the end of the third year with me, Ian took the same standard­ ized tests his classmates took. With the exception of spelling he tested far above grade level in all areas. He was interviewed by the school coun­ selor before school started in the fall. His mom, who sat in on the interview, said he fielded difficult questions with poise and self­ assurance. The counselor was im­ pressed and recommended that Ian take algebra, which is an advanced class for eighth grade. All of this has given Ian even more self-confidence ...

FEELING STUPID ... My 5-year-old daughter start­ ed kindergarten this past September. She loved it and is learning a lot at an amazing rate, I think' ... She has been telling me lately that she is "dumb" and "stupid" and "everyone else is smarter than she is." It both­ ers me terribly and all my explana­ tions and talks to her don't seem to do any good. - A NEW HAMPSHIRE READER.

... Just recently, one of my gui­ tar students told me that she is real­ ly getting a lot out of the lessons because I don't make her feel like a ~ummy' She went on to say that she as always been made to feel stupid in whatever she has attempted to do. I told her that she is not stupid, and that feeling that way can be an incredible hindrance in learning a musical instrument (or anything, for that matter). I also mentioned that our school system is quite good at making people feel stupid. She agreed. - DAVE VAN MANEN (CO). [JH:] A great many parents have sent us letters saying that very soon after their young children began school, they began coming home saying that they were "dumb" or "stupid." This is just as likely to be true of children who are doing very well in schoolwork as of those who are doing badly. These letters remind me that when I was teaching fifth grade in one of the most high-powered schools in the Boston-Cambridge area, a school that kids could not even get into unless they had IQs of 120 or more, almost all the children in my classes called themselves stupid. Their way of saying this made it clear they were dead serious - they really thought they were stupid. How did it happen, how could it happen

that in a school that thought of it­ self as being creative and encour­ aging creativity, these very bright children should have so quickly come to think of themselves as stupid? I think the answer is plain enough. When children are very lit­ tle, without putting it into words, they think of "learning" as exploring the world around them and trying to find out how it works and make some sense of it. They don't think of them­ selves as "stupid" because they are in fact very busy at exploring the world around them and are very good at it. They know they are good at it, because they keep finding out new things every day. It is only when adults begin to "teach" them, either in school or in the home, that children begin to think that "learning" means having information transferred from people who have it (grownups) to people who don't (children like themselves). Since it's perfectly clear to them that the grownups have a great deal more information than they do, they quite naturally begin to think of themselves as stupid. They think that being stupid and being ignorant, not having information, are the same things. They learn to say things like, "If you don't go to school, you'll be stupid" - though almost all the children who &£ to school also think of themselves as stupid,-oe= cause they are constantly confronting people who have more information than they do, or who say they do. Indeed, I think most adults equate having a lot of information with being intelligent, and therefore really do think of children as being stupider than adults, even if they are not conscious of this, or might not use that particular word. And so the children very quickly come to take this view of themselves. TVO HELPS SCHOOL OFFICIAL ...

"PROSPEROUS ILLITERATES"

[DR:] Last year Allen Manning of Syracuse University sent us a copy of his dissertation called PROSPEROUS ILLITERATES. This fascinating work is well-written in ordinary, colloquial English, not "academese," and we think it would make a great book. Allen says he has had no luck in find­ ing a commercial publisher; however, the dissertation is available both in microfilm and in published form from UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS INTERNATIONAL, PO Box 1764, Ann Arbor MI 48106 (ask for Allen Manning #84-10-733). Allen found and interviewed 11 "prosperous illiterates," men who had successful businesses or high-paying jobs even though they could barely read or write. He had a number of questions in mind when he began: How do the prosperous illiterates in his sample explain their economic suc­ cess? How do they cope in everyday non-work situations? How did they overcome such obstacles as employment applications, handling the payrolls of their businesses, etc.? Do people in their work situations respond nega­ tively to their being illiterate? The results are highly interest-

ing and shed much light on the nature of real-life learning as opposed to what goes on in schools. For example, here is a conversatio n with one of the men, Bill, who describes a truly effective training program, offered by his employer: BILL: When the job opening came for m~t was August, 1979. The com­ pany geared up a new technology. Everything was new. What they threw at me was electronics, shut down, pneumatic switching, programming, and a totally new concept of building. Today, three years after, I am the head journeyman in the plant. I han­ dle all the pneumatic tools, I have one apprentice under me, I handle all the computers, all the programming, and much of the electronics ... Q: Your company's given you an education? BILL: Yeah. When I go to school in Cleveland, it's usually a one on one class. Usually, the training I'll get is about a three or four day class. I'll go right into the plant where they build our equipment. The people that build them, or one of their engineers, will explain all this to me. We'll go to lunch. Then live. I go out and I have my cocktail lunch ... for an hour and a half. I get a chance to do this once or twice a year ... We'll come back. We'll get another two to three hours in. But it's a one on one situation, so it's very ideal for me ... Q: Now tell me, what about writ­ ten instruction? BILL: Oh yeah. There's w~itten instruction, okay . The only written instruction is if you don't know what a module could do, you would just have to pick up the guide, look at the diagrams, and see what it's capa­ ble 0 f doing ... Q: But how are you able to get along-with the problem of not being able to read and write very well? BILL: Oh, because the thing there~ you just go back over it, and go with it after you get it. You take your time. You don't rush it. And you just keep on goin' with it until you actually get it. Q: But how is it they didn't find Qut that you have a problem with reading? Didn't you have any written exams or things like that? BILL: No' They're teaching you . They're-not going to give you an exam­ ination. They'll sit there and tell you this and that, give you prints and everything. They're not ... you're ,oin out to those schools to learn. hey re not going to test you ...

MORE QUOTES FROM DISSERTATION [DR:] Besides the interviews, Allen Manning includes in PROSPEROUS ILLITERATES a great deal of research on schools, tests, literacy programs, and learning in general. Here are some wonderful quotes: [po 27] ... Teaching a student to feel comfortable in the testing situa­ tion can help. Jensen (1969) spent half an hour a day for a few days in the test setting, playing with child­ ren from low-income backgrounds. He found that with this treatment, "A boost of IQ of 8 to 10 points was the rule; it rarely failed, but neither was the gain very much above this." [po 41] ... The Kerner Commission on Civil Disorders recommended in 1968 the elimination of unnecesary job requirements. It noted the "pre ju-

dicial effect' of, for example, cer­ tain aptitude tests and unnecessarily high academic qualifications ... A bla­ tant example of the kind of discrimin­ ation in question was reported by L. Ferman (The Negro and E~ual Employ­ ment 0tPortunities ~6 ): II n one of the local plants studied, fifteen Negro workers were employed on a production line in assembly work. Due to production pressures, these workers were hired without the usual Wunderlicht battery of tests. After a six- month period, the workers were given the tests. In spite of the fact that each one of the workers had received a satisfac­ tory supervisor rating on the job, not one of the fifteen received a passing test score ." [They lost their jobs. ] [ Po 108 ] ... We shouldn 't assume that people who can read and write do read and write . Rubin (1976) found -­ that even though the working-class people she studied could read, hardly any of them read with any regularity. Instead, they were TV-watchers. Nor does literacy per se create good citizens or coherent thinkers. One of the most literate societies in history was Nazi Germany (Pattison, 1983) ... Scribner and Cole (1978) studied the effects of literacy on the Vai people of northwest Liberia. About 20-25 % of the Vai men read and write Vai. The literate Vai were virtually indistinguishable from the illiterate Vai in their values. All were quite traditional. Vai literates scored the same as illiterates on sorting and reasoning tasks. The most common use of written Vai was to write letters to others in the Vai country ... [Po 178 ] ... "P. Rozin and his students took over a class of inner­ City children with severe reading problems. When he tried to teach them to read English they showed him con­ sistent failures, just as they showed their regular English teachers. One day Dr. Rozin brought in a set of Chinese characters, and told the children that each one stood for a spoken English word. Within hours, these children were reading entire paragraphs in 'Chinese.' Obviously the capacity for reading was present but something was damming it up ... I suspect that ... the children had learned through repeated failure that they could not read English." [From Helplessness by M. Seligman, 1975. J [P o l86 J ... Many children learn to read without memorization. Parents take them on their laps and read to them. Here is how the lap method works, according to Moffet and Wagner (Student-Centered Language Arts and Teaching, 1976): 1. A parent reads to a child as the child looks at the print and pictures. 2. The child matches off print with speech very grossly at first. Over time, the child narrows his/her focus, moving from distinguishing pages from one another, to para­ graphs, sentences, phrases, words, and eventually to phonemes. The child occasionally asks the parent to point out a word for something s/he is par­ ticularly interested in. 3. The more words the child learns and can "cue from," the more s/he is able to figure out new words. The child learns a new word by using the context of the sentence it appears in, and by noting, for exam­ ple, that wh appears in which, what,

and where, and by then figuring out the sound wh stands for ... [p o 192J ... Willie Mays, when he was asked how to hit a home run, answered, "Darned if I know." ...

J .P. TAKES TESTS Kathy Mingl (IL) sent us a 30+ page document she wrote for her regional superintendent, entitled "Report on the Educational Program Of Jason Peter Joseph Mingl." She also wrote us this letter: ... I've been coaching J.P. (6) on using "school" terms for the things we do, because he's been hav­ ing trouble with the little girl next door - she strongly disapproves of J.P. not having to go to school, and asks him things like "What did you do in school today?" in a very sarcastic tone of voice. I know that "Report" sounds like we're very scheduled and organized (actually that's the impression I was trying to convey - not that anything we said was a lie, or anything - it's just that I coUTOn't explain the real dynamic s of the whole business, o-r--­ the real issues, for that matter, to people who-assume that learning comes from the outside in). I feel that I have to reassure every home schooler who reads it that we ' re really jer y informal and "serendipitous" (? , that we proceed by fits and starts and occasional tantrums (bo th of us), and we backslide a lot. Still, we do sound good in print, don't we? Sue Radosti (IN) was very help­ ful and encouraging, and Tony and I were really impressed with all the work she put into hunting ~p those references for us. She had talked about buying a wood burned plaque from me for a baby gift and I had no idea what to charge her, so I suggested that maybe she could do some research for me as a trade. Would you believe it, she thought she hadn't done enofigh? I told her I thought the exc ange was fine. We had J.P. tested at the Read­ ing Achievement Center in LaGrange, a couple of weeks ago - they did four hours of standard tests on two Satur­ days (2 hours each). They had worked with homeschoolers before, and I explained that I didn't really feel a need for it, but it seemed like a good idea to be able to say we'd had it done, and Tony was in favor of it. J.P. enjoyed it, for the most part ­ he likes puzzles and games, and these were very friendly and cnpressured . I prepared him for it beforehand by go­ ing over a copy of a test that his godmother (a teacher) had sent for him, just seeing that he was familiar with the rules and knew how to "win." I went over the definition of the word "wrong" with him, and made sure he knew what it meant and that it was the answers that didn't match the questions that were "wrong," not him, if he marked any of those. I'm glaa-I did that, too, because it turned out that he did have a bit of emotional confusion-about the word already, just from its general use as a term for unethical or inappropriate be­ havior ...

The results of these tests weren 't anything new - J.P. is very verbal (I've noticed), and has the reasoning powers and vocabulary of an 8-year-old (more, I'd say, but I'm only his mother). He is "behind" in spelling (he's just learned to work words out phonetically - I imagine that would confuse things admirably), reading, and "visual memory" of abstract shapes, but good at inter­ preting meaningful pictures (why should he have any interest in remem­ bering something that doesn't ~ean anything? He's a practical kid). I had rromised to behave myself, but I almost forgot when they said he tends to reverse his letters because of something to do with his right hand, left eye, and brain - I told him we didn't go for all that "brain" stuff . You'd have thought I'd said we didn't believe in the law of gravity . The fact is, sometimes J.P. writes his letters backwards and sometimes he doesn 't - it depends on how inter­ ested r.e is in what he's doing . Anyway, they were very nice, and J.P. didn't seem to mind doing it. Now, he's decided he can read. I was wondering when he'd c'ome to that con­ clusion - he's been doing it for over a year. He ~as just the same with learning to walk. I don't know if that makes the testing worth $125, but after all, if we'd had to let the schools test him (they haven't asked, but we consider this a precaution), he might have decided he couldn't read, and then where would we be? One useful thing that was men­ tioned in going over those tests was that J.P. seemed to have a confusion about the significance of upper-case and lower-case letters, mixing them up pretty much at random. I hadn ' t spotted that. We took an hour or so to go over that area, picking out the places the capital letters came in a story, and figuring out ~ they were used, from the punctuation and the sense of the words. I think he's got that now, so that was OK, but I'm sure he would have noticed it eventu­ ally on his own ... SUMMARY OF EVALU ATI ON PROCEDURES [DR: 1 Several people have asked if we knew of any court rulings con­ cerning the way homeschoolers are evaluated, rather than simply whether homeschooling is permissible. We have just received two, both from New York State. In one, a 1982 case, the court ruled that standardized tests were not required, that other evaluation methods would be sufficient. In the other, from 1983, the judge decided that "infrequent, unobtrusive" visits to the home by school officials could reasonably be requested. We quote at length from the two rulings in the articles that follow. It is interesting to note that the two cecisions hold almost opposite ideas about the definition of "substantially equivalent" instruc­ tion. One, the 1982 case, says it is enough if the results of the educa­ tion are equivalent. The other says the methods are what count - "a sys­ tematic course of study . " Perhaps one of these two ideas will eventually win out as the authoritative defini­ tion. Meanwhile, homeschooling par ­ ents should use whichever is to their advantage. If your children perform well above grade level even though you don't do much formal educational activity at home, stress the "re ­ sults"; if the children are, say, reading below grade level, stress

to the instruction giv­ en to minors of like age and attain­ ments at the public schools of the city or district where the minor res i des." (Educ. Law Sec. 3204) Courses of study are outlined for the first eight years of school­ ing. (Educ. Law Sec. 3204 sub . 3) The superintendent of schools of a city school district is charged with the duty of administering these provisi ons. (Educ. Law Sec. 2508) The right of parents to remove their children from any form of for­ mal schooling is undeniable. (Franz, Falk, Lash.) ----­ ---- However, the burden of policing home instruction remains with the superintendent and school board of the public school. Frequently the separation from school is less than harmonious and the rigid personal philosophy of the parents renders future supervision difficult. To enforce his supervisory role, the superintendent must resort to the awkward vehicle of a Family Court neglect proceeding or, even more bur ­ densome, a criminal action. (See Peo­ ple vs. Turner 277 App. Div. 317)--The standards applicable to pub­ lic schools are far more stringent than those for the home study pro­ gram. The certification required for a public school teacher does not attend to the home school instructor, for example. (See People vs. Turner, Supra) The public school educational materials and curriculum need not be adopted by the home teacher provided the end result is a "substantially equivalent" education. So a child may be educated "else­ where," by unqualified personnel and using untested materials and methods; but the school superintendent must ensure that the end result is on par with that of the public schools . In enlisting the aid of the Fami­ ly Cou rt, an additional hurdle must be cleared. The uncooperative parent must be charged with neglect . The bur­ den in the first instance is upon the superintendent to establish some edu­ cational neglect in order to secure the remedial order needed to direct standardized testing. The Petitioner in this case, however, cannot clear this hurdle because the very basis of his claim is not an educational short­ coming but an alleged ignorance of the quality of the education afforded by the parents to Amber. While this Court can sympathize with,the plight of the Petitioner occasioned by the deficiencies inherent in the Educa­ tion Law, it is obligated by the pro­ visions of the Family Court Act to focus on the fundamental issue of whether or not the Petitioner has pro­ ven an educational neglect . (Family Court Act Sec. 1012 [f) i A) In this regard Petitioner relies upon the failure of the parents to submit Amber to standardized testing. Were this the exclusive gauge to determine equivalent instruction, the Petitioner might have some hope of prevailing. The proof indicates it is not. While it may be the best method, it is not the only method. Such test­ ing is of recent vintage . Amber her­ self could not perform on these tests even while trained in the public schools. Subjective review of the edu­ cational materials, lesson plans, attendance records and Amber's work product remains as an alternative. The Respondents have submitted their course materials, attendance records and samples of Amber's work and furth­ er have cooperated in most of the re­ quests made of them by Petitioner. ~eguivalent

121 MISCELLANEOUS REPORTS, 2d SERIES. IN THE MATTER OF JOHN KILROY AND ANOTHER, CHILDREN ALLEGED TO BE NEGLECTED . JOHN FICKEISEN ET AL, RESPONDENTS . FAMILY COURT, CAUYUGA COUNTY, 1983. Peter E. Corning, Justice. This is a proceeding brought under article ten of the Family Court Act alleging that the respondents are educationally neglecting their two minor children. The respondents, moth­ er and ~tepfather of the two child­ ren, have chosen to educate their children at home rather than in the public sc hools . This matter has been before the court before, and the pre­ vious histor y will aid in understand­ ing the current factual situation . FACTS A previous petition for neglect dated February 1, 1980, was brought against the respondents by ~etition­ er. By orde r dated May 23, 1980, I directed that the home school be eval­ uated by members of the Committee on Evaluation of Nonpublic Schools, that copies of the materials and lesson plans used for instruction be fur­ nished ty respondents to the commit­ tee prior to the evaluation, and that all t extbooks and materials used in the home school be supplied to the committee. On June 4, 1980, pursuant to my order, the committee visited the Fickeisen residence in Moravia for the purpose of the evaluation . While critiquing the home school in several aspects, the committee's unanimous opinion at that time was "that the children are currently receiving equivalent instruction to th at available in the public schools." Despite this finding, the report of July 15, 1980 proceeded to caution that there was a definite question regarding Mrs . Fickeisen's ability to meet the needs of her children as the curriculum becomes more sophisticated and t hat any appro­ val given was for the current year only. The report further stated that if home teaching is contemplated for another year, the programs should be approved in advance and there should be a periodic review by the evalua­ tion committee. Based on this report, I issued my order of disposition of July 18, 1980 dismissing the neglect petition. The current problem has arisen as a result of the commit t ee attempt­ ing to carry out its periodic review . On November 5, 1982, the District Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Paul W. Haley, requested the opportunity to review the current educational pro­ gram of the home school; the respon ­ dents complied and supplied the mater­ ials to Dr. Anthony T . Beaudry, Super­ intendent of the Moravia School Dis­ trict.

By letter dated January 17, 1983, Dr . Beaudry acknowledged receipt of the materials and request­ ed permission to do an on-site evalua­ tion to determine the equivalency of instruction . Respondents have refused to permit the on-site evaluation which, in petitioner's view, prevents the school authorities from being able to determine whether or not the children are receiving an equivalent education and therefore constitutes educational neglect. In answer to the instant summons dated February 25, 1983 and petition for neglect, respond ents ... alleged that the on-site evaluation was un­ necessary, burdensome and harassing, and asked for dismissal of the peti­ tion . .. Respondents additionally con­ tend that the proposed on-site evalua­ tion constitutes an unwarranted intru­ sion that adversely affects their co n­ stitutional rights relating to reli­ gion, privacy and child rearing ... DISCUSSION Subdivision 2 of section 3204 of the Education Law provides that if instruction is given elsewhere than in a public school, it must be given by a competent teacher and be at least substantially equivalent to that of the local public schools. The burden of proof is upon respondents to show that substantially equivalent instruction is being afforded. (See, e.g . , Thomas H., 78 Misc 2d 412. ) To sastisfy thi s-ourden, it is suffi­ cient to show a systematic course of study is being undertaken at home and that the parent is rendering quality instruction. (Wa lker vs. Foster, 69 Misc 2d 400, 403.) " [rj nstruc ti on giv­ en to a child at home by its parent, who is competent to teach, should sat­ isfy the requirements of the compul­ sory education law." (People vs Tur­ ner, 277 App Div 317, 319 320~ --- To properly evaluate the "equi­ valency" of the education being afforded the minors, the petitioner believes an on-si t e evaluation of the h ome school necessary. The school set­ ting is an obvious and critical fac­ tor affecting the nature and ~uality of education being afforded, and a factor that is established by common sense with no need of proof. More importantly, the law is clear that instruction must be afforded by a com­ petent teacher (Education Law Sec. 3204). In my opinion it is impossible to evaluate the competency of any teacher, whether in a public school or a home school, without actually observi ng that teacher in a classroom setting instructing pupils. This con­ c lusion is so elemental and tasic, that judicial knowledge can be taken of it and no proof is required. The April, 1980 Guidelines for Determining Equivalency of Instruc­ tion, issued by Robert R. Spillane, then Deputy Commissioner for Elemen­ tary, Secondary, and Contin uing Educa­ tion of the New York State Education Department, recommends that visita­ tion be employed in the case of new nonpublic schools and for those non­ public schools whose equivalency has been called into question. The visita ­ tion contemplated rel ates to ~atters other than teacher observation, but is an indication of the importance attached by the State Education De­ partment to a physical visit to the premises. The request to conduct very in­ frequent on-site evaluations (the last one being on June 4, 1980) is most reasonable and unobtrusive. As the committee noted in its last visit­ ation, there was a definite question


14

as ~o Mrs. Fickeisen's ability to teach a more sophisticated curricu­ lum. It is the committee's duty to see that instruction is delivered by competent teachers, and its determina­ tion that an on-site visit and evalua­ tion is n e cessar y i s beyond question b y an y r e as onable person. If the fre­ quency of visitation were such c S to anno y or to discourage home instruc­ tion, that would present another case; but that is certainly not the factual situation presented herein. I cannot find that this infre­ quent, unobtrusive home visitation, at a time to be mutually agreed upon, violates any of the respondents' con­ stitutionally protected rights. Respondents have no absolute right to educate their children at home free from all State regulation or control; having chosen to utilize the statu­ tory exceptions to public education, they must observe the reasonable re­ quirements imposed cpon home school­ ing by those charged with responsibil­ ity for the children's proper home education. ... Rather than find educational neglect at this juncture and acting in the best interest of all con­ cerned, particularly the children, I will withhold such a determination for a period of thirty days from the date of this decision. If within that time period the parties have agreed upon a mutually satisfactory date for an on-site evaluation, I will contin­ ue to hold this proceeding in abey­ ance pending the report of the commit­ tee's actual on-site evaluation.,. WHY HOMESCHOOLERS ARE CAUTIOUS Newspaper reporters and other media people who begin doing stories on homeschooling are sometimes sur­ prised to find out how ~any parents are unwilling to have their names pub­ lished or even to talk about the mat­ ter at all. A generally favorable article on homeschooling in the San Diego Union, 8/19/84, gives a clue-as to why parents feel this way. Lynn Hartzler, Program Manager of Alternative and Independent Study for the California Department of Edu­ cation, is quoted as saying that when home schooled children return to school later, they find themselves way behind other students at their grade level. He is simply talking through his hat. He has absolutely no evidence to back up this kind cf remark, and indeed the overwhelming evidence is in exactly the opposite direction. As Dr. Raymond Moore has pointed out, the very large majority of parents who have actually been pro­ secuted by schools have had children who were testing well ahead of their age-mates on standardized tests. In general, the tone of the quotes from officials is threatening. Later in the article, Hartzler says that people can declare their home a private school "at least until their competency is tested by a local school district, which could chal­ lenge a family as to whether or not they are operating a bona fide pri­ vate school." Perfectly obviously, Hartzler is inviting such legal assaults on homeschoolers. He is try­ ing to provoke an incident. Later he says that such private schools "might have to prove in court that they are functioning at a cer­ tain level of competence that par­ allels that of the public school sys­ tem." To speak of the "competence" of the public school system is to make a bitter joke. He then goes on to say

that "most school boards have more important things to do than harass parents on this subject." But the clear implication is that if they didn't have more important things to do, or if they got these cleared out of the way, they would then begin to harass. I cannot see these remarks as anything but thinly veiled threats, implying that they are going to allow this foolishness to go on for the time being, but at any moment they just may decide to crack down on it. Here is John Cooper, assistant superintendent of the Escondido school district, saying, "The way our present laws are structured and the way our budget has been cut, we just don't have a program to go out and find kids whose parents are going about this illegally ... " Again, the clear implication that he would be harassing these parents if he could. Another school official says, "If there's a private school opera­ ting in a home with one child­ student, there may be a question about what's being taught and how competent the parents are at teach­ ing ... If we get a complaint, we look into it and determine if it fits our conception of what a private school should be. If it doesn't, we might turn the case over to the city attor­ ney's office." But nothing in the law gives the local school districts the right to make "conceptions" of what schools should be. The clear message in all of this is, "If you are not doing it exactly the way we are in our public schools, sooner or later we are going to come after you." No wonder many homeschool­ ers are still wary. - JH GOOD EASY READING BOOKS From Karen Schadel (NY):

... I'd been on the look-out for books "with a story" that were on a beginning reader level that Joshua (8) could read and enjoy. The first ones we found were at Chanukkah time last year and I gave them to Joshua as a gift. They have been read and read and read again. They are from a series of "Read-It­ Yourself" fairy tales published by Ladybird Books in England and are sold through the JUST FOR KIDS catalog (Winterbrook ~ay, Meredith NH 03253). The four we have are HANSEL AND CRETEL, BILLY GOATS GRUFF, THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER, and GOLDI­ LOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS. The Fall '84 catalog has five - all different from what we ordered a year ago PUSS IN BOOTS, RAPUNZEL, PETER AND THE WOLF, RED RIDING 1-:00D, and THREE LITTLE PIGS ($12.95 for the set). The text is in fairly large print with a limited amount of words per page. The illustrations are color­ ful and somewhat comical ... We all love them and Sadrah (3) and Seth (6) beg Joshua or anyone they can to read them all one after another. Since they are stories that Joshua already knew and because the text was really quite easy, he sailed through the books and felt proud at his ability to read a whole story ... Another set of books we've dis­ covered are the "Solve-It-Yourself Easy-Read" books published by Troll Associates. We ordered them through the TOYS TO GROW eN catalog (PO Box 17, Long Beach CA 90801; 800-421­ 5873). There is much more text to them, but the stories are all inter­ esting. Usually Joshua and I take turns reading. I do one page, then he

the next. Seth generally complains be­ cause Joshua reads slowly, and Joshua often groans when his page contains a lot to read, but ~e read along and the stories are interesting and of a mysterious-enough nature to still hold everyone's attention, even Sadrah' Some of the titles: MRS.

I have always written, kept jour­ nals, and used a typewriter, so wri­ ting is not new to Josh. The first thing he "wrote" was at age 2~, when he was composing a poem/song impromp­ tu. I copied it down and it was later published in Nurturin& magazine. Later, as he told stories or had an insight, I wrote down what he had to say. Now at 5, he knows what a poem is. He knows what writing a story means, because writing has evolved to be part of our family life. After hearing poetry read to him, he likes to compose his own poems and he real­ ly seems to understand that poems should be rhythmic. It's fun to type them out and hang them up.

absolutely delightful. Janine Cousin­ eau was the bravest - she would hold her hand up, the huge f l ying beetle would fall to the ground, and then she'd put it in her skirt pocket' We all laughed when one pinched her right through the pocket' Brian now has about 30 new addit ions to his insect collection - magnificently colored moths, small beetles, butter­ flies, bees, and huge stag beetles. Brian also made a giant leap in his ability to converse in French. My husband joined us after our first 3~ weeks . .. He couldn' t believe it when he first had dinner at the Cousineaus and witnessed his 5-year-old son car­ rying on long conversations in French. The rest of our trip, we visited dozens of chateaux, cathedrals, muse­ ums, small villages and other histori­ cal and lovely sites. Brian has since become keenly interested in the stor­ ies of the Bible, the Middle Ages, knights and castles, gargoyles, Leon­ ardo ca Vinci, and architecture. We gave him a camera and let him take hi s own photographs during o ur trip. 95% of his photos are of buildings ­ mostly interesting roof-lines and ornate carvings on the buildings, etc. . .. After returning from France, Brian's new awareness of other coun­ tries was renewed when he watched the Olymp ics on television. He became intrigued with the flags of different countries. He has bookmarked "Flags" in his WORLD BOOK ENCYCLOPEDIA and refers to it constantly . We found a place to buy flags from allover the world for $2 each. He gets to choose and buy one or two each week to add to his collection. With each flag he chooses, we look up the country, find out ~here it is located on his globe, le arn what the colors and symbols on each flag represent, and learn a lit­ tle about the country and its peo­ ple . . . By the way, I talked to one home school family in France - the wife of a physician who was keeping her four children out o f school until around age 12. She knew of no other home schoolers. One difference I noticed in France, is that a home school fami­ ly could not begin to find the out­ side resources available to Ameri­ cans, such as Park & Recreation class­ es, zoos, museum-sponsored classes, a diverse selection of private lessons, community college classes, and com­ munity activities. Also, French schools are so structured and strict, it would be much harder for a home­ schooler to adapt to public school if s/he so chose at some point ... And from Star Fishel (CAl: . . . Last time I wrote to you [G WS #26], I was taking a Spanish class through our college outreach program. I was auditing it because they didn't allow anyone under 16 to take classes there. The first was more fun than the second year, partly because we were just learning the basics of Span­ ish and we didn't do much on the verbs ( they are boria9 to memorize' l but also because we ldn't have a textbook and it was a more ope n class. We talked a lot in Spanish and I learned a lot and had fun. But the college changed it. They said it was not academic enough and so the second year we had to buy an expensive text­ book and the teacher had to follow certain guidelines, give tests, etc ... After that class was over, I hardly ever looked in our Spanish books, or had anything to do with Spanish, unless I wanted to talk to

Mom in our "secret" language without the little kids understanding! It worked for a while until they learned a lot of the simple words. But this winter we went to Mexi­ co for a month and suddenly, there I was, having to actually use the Span­ ish language. It never really felt relevant to rre to practice and memor­ ize those verbs up here where I could never use them. But when we got there - oh, how I wished I had worked hard­ er to learn it' I knew enough to ask simple directions and have simple con­ versations but beyond that I was lost. I was amazed how much I learned by just being immersed in and sur­ rounded by it, though, and without even knowing I was learning anything - I just sort of soaked it in. We kept our Spanish dictionary handy and looked up all the signs and new words as we came across them and the people were all very friendly and patient and wi lling to help. I think that's the best way to learn a language - to go and live in a country ... I'd love to live in Mexico for a few months and learn to speak fluently ... MATH THROUGH CARD GAME From Kathy Mingl ( IL):

... J.P. (6) does quite well with numbers - he has a feeling for them, and we "practice" them a lot. What we do not do is pages and pages of work­ boo~xercises - we have our own methods. We invented a real good card game for "arithmetic lessons" - it's called "Bismark" (because J.P. likes jelly donuts). The rules vary, but basically each player gets a certain number of cards, which are laid out face up so that everyone can see them (so they can help each other, . and trade cards if each has something the other needs). The remaining cards are stacked face down in the middle, and a pile for discards is started beside it. The object of the game is to make combinations of numbers that add up to whatever sum is agreed on. The aces are "ones," and face cards are used for trading with the stack. If you can't make up the needed sum on your turn (mostly we play that you can put it down anytime you spot it), you can trade an unneeded card by put­ ting it face up in the discard pile and taking one from the stack, or you can take a OIScard - as many as you want, as l ong as you leave at least one - for trading on your next turn. Ties are very common, but if it gets too easy, you can play that black cards are "plus" and red cards are "take-away" ... This can get marvelous­ lY complicated, and it makes add1t10n and subtraction remarkably easy to take ... BEHIND SCENES AT ZOO More from Pamela Pacula (CA):

... While at the San Francisco Zoo, we visited the entomologist who has been very willing to share her knowledge of insects with Brian (5) in the past. Brian showed her his European Stag Beetle and she took us and another homeschooling family on a tour of the back room where they raise and take care of the insects. Last spring she had given Brian a Walking Stick for his collection and he had written her a thank-you' note on which he drew a "Walking Stick playing Viola." She pointed it out on

their bulletin board, tell ing Brian how much everyone loved his draw­ ing ... We saw dozens of Costa Rica Katydids, a huge banana spider, and learned how dangerous insects are handled and cared for. At one point , as the entomolo­ gist was cleaning the cricket cage, she mentioned that this particular batch was dying too quickly and that she had trouble keeping them alive for any length of time. I said that we had field crickets allover a nd that Brian has kept them as pets with no problems. So, she asked if he could collect and take care of a couple dozen crickets and bring them to the Insect Zoo next time we came. Brian couldn't have been given an assignment he liked better' ... [DR:] Homeschoolers in other cities may find that zoos offer much more than merely the opportunity to see animals in cages. For example, the new Children's Zoo at Franklin Park in Boston is sponsoring a 4-H Club in which city children are re­ sponsible for tak i ng care of the goats, rabbits, ponie s, etc. It is also running a series of slide shows by local wildlife experts on Sunday afternoons (adults $1, children 50¢). At one of these recently, I learned that the Massachusetts Audubon Soci­ ety is looking for volunteers of any age to help with a s~tewide salaman­ der count in 1985 and to monitor acid rain. Sounds like a wonderful chance for some of our reader s to become involved in real scientific research. INTERVIEW WITH JOHN PAYNE

Patrick Farenga, who has written in a number of issues about learning to play the sax, recorded the follow­ ing interview with his teacher, John Payne, who has achieved a respected position among professional musicians even though he didn't start the sax until he was-Zl. Here are some ex­ cerpts from that interview (comments in brackets are Pat's ): ... Besides being a salesman, my father played the banjo. Sometimes he played 20's and 30's music with some friends and there would be jam ses­ sions in our house. One day, I may have been about 9, I went up to my big brother's room, took out his uku­ lele and teaching manual, and taught myself some of the basics. My father taught me some more, and this led me to take guitar lessons. Those lasted about six months. In grammar school I joined the choir and I really had a blast. I loved the sound we made, especially these five-part harmony pieces our teacher taught us. She reall y gave us some good stuff to sing. I also learned to playa "tonette" (plastic recorder) in grade school, and when I was in fifth grade I joined the school band. They asked me to choose an instrument to learn and I chose the clarinet because it had the same shape and black body as my tonette. It was in eighth grade that I played an instrument in a band organized out­ side of school. We played "Jada Jada Jing Jing Jing" in a friend's bed­ room ..• During that whole time I never thought I'd become a musician. I just liked to play. I could go a month or two without practicing and not worry about it. It wasn't a big goal of mine. Throughout high school and dur­ ing my time as an undergraduate at

Harvard I played Dixieland on my clar­ ine t, but I never thought that I would devote myself to music. I was a philosophy major, and after a couple of years I dropped out ... I didn't know what I wanted to do .. . I got a job editing math textbooks when I was nineteen and I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my music. ... When I was 19 or 20, my dad took me to see the Thelonius Monk Quarte t at Lennies On The Turnpike. It was a slow night and we got seats right up near the piano . The band came out and Monk played an intro and I was intrigued. I could hear that he was doing something different than all the other piano players I had heard. Then the rest of the band came in and I was blown away. Charlie Rouse was playing tenor sax, as he did for years with Monk. I never knew that you could express so much on an instrument as these guys were doing' Monk's songs were so different from any thing I had ever heard before and I was excited about them. Excited that you could do these way-out things and say meaningful things with them. The next day I went out and bought my first Monk album. I then became a jazz record nut, hanging the album covers up on the walls of my apartment, playing my favorites for visitors, "You just have to listen to this. You're not going to believe it'" Until then I can say I really didn't have any models or idols to emulate in music except my father ... [John purchased a tenor sax when he was 21. That summer he took some courses at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, one of the nation's top jazz schools.] Here I was, barely knowing how to play the sax, and I was studying sax at Berklee' At this' stage I was still too uncertain to verbalize what I was beginning to feel stronger and stronger, that I wanted to be a professional musician. Joe Viola, a sax instructor at Berk­ lee who gives private lessons, was a great help to me at the time. He never gave me any personal guidance or special attention, but he had faith in me and apparently in his other students. He never made me feel that I was incapable of learning the sax. A little later I was jamming around town when a friend, a bass player, told me he was backing this guy, Van Morrison, and they were play­ ing at the Stone Phoenix, an old cof­ feehouse ... I had never heard of Van at the time ... I went there with my flute one night and listened to him for a bit. It was a duo, just Van playing acoustic guitar and singing backed by the double bass. I thought he had a real nasal, kind of whiney voice, and wondered if I should leave. But my friend must have talked Van into letting me sit in because he said it was OK in the second set . On stage I listened to the way the first song went for a few bars, then came in with a few things. Then it hap­ pened. Even though he wasn't looking at me, I could hear Van altering his playing and singing to match or answer the lines I was playing on my flute. It was the first time I had played with someone of that caliber, Van has great rhythmic sense, and I started to enjoy myself. Then he sang "Brown Eyed Girl" which I recognized from the juke boxes around town, and I realized who I was playing with: a real pro' When the set was over he asked me if I wanted to come back and sit in with them the next night. I did, and when we were through that night

he asked me to join his band and come to New York where they were recording an album. I left Houghton-Mifflin again, packed my bags, and went to New York. [During the recording of the album, the producer thought they should use only seasoned pros to back Van.) I was real cocky in those days. I was so persistent about wanting to play on the album that I was annoying the producer. Finally, the other flute player was tired and wanted t o leave but Van wanted to record one more. I told the producer that I was ready and he gave in . We did the song so well it became the title song for the album, "Astral Weeks ." " [A few years of working at Hough­ ton-Mifflin, dropping in and out of Harvard, and jamming around town fol­ lowed. In 1971, John was asked to join Bonnie Raitt's group. Through the contacts he made in her band, he also recorded and toured with David Bromberg. He left these groups for the same reason he left Morrison's:) After six or so months playing with these groups I felt I went as far musically as I could go with them. wanted to play more than just the eight or so bars alloted to me in their arrangements. [In 1973, John founded the John Payne Band. This led to two albums and a lot of touring. The albums are a lively mixture of jazz and rock, with original songs by John and other band members . After four years of try­ ing to make the band take off, John decided to call it quits:) We just couldn't turn the national corner . The road was getting to me. As a side­ man you don't mind all the time on your hands as you sit around the motels, eat out all the time, and then play your gig that night. But as a leader there are so many things to be looked after besides just playing ... [It was a combination of things that made him get into full-time teaching others to play the sax:) I felt a duty towards it, I felt I could do it. I don't think I'm natur­ arry-a good teacher at all, I think that to any extent that I'm a good teacher is because I worked at it. It also intrigued me that I wasn't good at it. I wasn't organized, I was slow­ ly getting more organized, figuring this out, figuring that out. I just was real sure that you could teach improvisation. I didn't see why every­ one thought that was so d~fficult ... I figured that if I slugged at it long enough I'd figure out how to do it.

Number two, once I started my family in 1979 I knew I needed to make more money . I also knew I didn't want to be an absentee father, and go on the road any more. So economics also brought me around to teaching ... Sometimes I actually do think, "What am I teaching for?" I get so tired, so burned out . I'm juggling so many balls running the Center ... But when I'm in that mood what gets me through is the feeling of duty. I have a unique background to be able to do what I'm doing and there's no one else doing it. So if I stop doing it it'll never get done . . . [Continued in next issue . ) A FIDDLE CLUB From Ross Campbell on our staff:

... Last month I went to my first meeting of the Boston Scottish Fiddle Club. What I noticed right away was

GROWING WITHOUT SCHOOLING 642

that at age 23 I was by several years the young est person there, and that I was among a very few who h ad played a musical instrument as a child . Many of the people were dancers and had be­ come interested in learning to play from seeing and hearing thei r friends play at dances . There was a wide range of ability among us, but the leader did nothing to separate us into beginning, intermediate, and advanced groups. People just played together in small groups around the room, the more experienced offering help when asked and offering examples merely by their playing. When we played later as one big group, we would play once or twice through a piece slowly so that the less experi­ enced players would not feel left out, and then up to speed . A person was free to playas many or as few notes as s/he felt up to, but even while not playing everyone could see and hear how one should play - an in­ formal Suzuki approach with example and repetition. But it was not a les­ son as such, for the experienced ~lay­ ers were not there for the sake of beginners but because they like to play Scottish tunes. Similarly, the beginning players were not there to • learn to play, but actually to play, right then and at their own level. It was a musical get-together, a social event which incidentally involved a lot of learning. This is not to say that workshops or lessons are in any way bad, but rather that there is no need to consider as separate activ­ ities learning to play and playing. Indeed, if they thought they could play with the group only after they had learned the tunes and Scottis h styling, few people would come ... FAMILIES MAKI NG MUSIC From Madalene Murphy (PA):

... John asked for comments in GWS #39 about families making music together. Last summer we tought four soprano recorders from GWS and Tom decided to buy an alto for variety . We picked up THE RECORDER GUIDE by Kulbach and Ni tka (a book ~e highly recommend and one that we were pleased to find other home schoolers around Pittsburgh using). It includes a lot of duets for alto and soprano. We also bought THE ABC OF RECORDER PLAYING, a book the children have dipped into and enjoyed because even practicing the ve ry first note is pre­ sented in terms of a song so that Clare (5) and Christian (8) could say that they were playing "The Seasons" instead of just the note " C." Emily quickly became tored with the slow pace and flipped through the book until she found "Ode to Joy." She has now begun to fool around with it again, learning some pi eces she can play with us and then trying to pick out her own melodies . One night she stumbled onto the tune to "Aunt Rhody" and was amazed she could have done this herself . The progress that Tom and I ­ and the children as well - have made has been slow, but we are enjoying it thoroughly. Tom, who plays some guitar, had never played with anyone else before and I, who endured eight years of piano lessons, had r.ever played because I wanted to or even what I wanted to, had never just fooled around putting sounds together and getting to know an instrument . I started teaching Emily piano when she was seven, but I was doing too much "teaching" and she was not

interested in making any long-term commitment so neither of us found it a pleasant experience and I dropped it . Then when she was nine she sud­ denly dragged out her piano books again and started practicing all the pieces she had learned before and wanted me to help her learn more. She has been moving completely at her own pace, something I was never able to do, and she has maintained her inter­ est on her own. She is using the very traditional John Thompson series because she wanted to and didn't want to switch to Suzuki or Mrs. Stewart at this pOint. Her practicing is totally unscheduled and it is amazing to me when she sits down and works for two hours trying to get a piece down and then plays it for three or four days whenever she passes the piano. Of course this is preceded and followed by days of not touching the piano at all, but this is some­ thing she does on her own and she comes to me when she needs help. She is talking about taking lessons now so we shall see what develops . Christian began taking Suzuki violin when he was six and was very excited about it until the teacher began making it more and more of a chore and became increasingly nega­ tive . She seemed to think Christian had talent and should therefore be able to pick up a piece immediately, and when he didn't, she became very impatient . The result is that now Christian just started taking Suzuki guitar - a program that a teacher here in Pittsburgh has put together himself since there is no official Suzuki program for the guitar. This teacher seems very positive in his approach and very relaxed about the classes . Christian will be playing many of the same basic Suzuki tunes as well as a few other pieces, and will have a tape to listen to. So far he loves it and I am watching care­ fully . From our previous experience I even feel that the fact this guitar teacher has no official Suzuki train­ ing may be an advantage. Clare also began a new musical adventure this summer. After she begged us for over a year to take vio­ lin less ons, we finally gave in. We discovered a neighbor (Hooray' No driving) who teaches violin, NOT the Suzuki approach, although she uses a few of the same tunes. She encouraged Clare to fool around with the instru­ ment - something Christian was not allowed to do when he took the violin - and she is very understanding of the five-year-old fidgets and peri­ odic lack of attention . Practicing is not Clare's favorite thing, but she is required to do something every day

with the violin, and so far her enthusiasm is undiminished. We have discovered something fun to do with our individual instruments as we are learning control over them: get together with another home school­ ing family (the Richmans) and play for, as well as with, each other ... From Candace Syman-Degler (OR): ... Isaac (11) has been in and out of Suzuki violin and piano since he was three. Vanessa (8) has also taken Suzuki violin and piano. Because piano lessons were such a rote part of my existence during nine years of my childhood, I've always let my own children quit at different points when they've indicated a strong lack of interest in prac­ ticing. (This goes along with my feel­ ing that all learning occurs in spurts with irregular "spaces" in between). Also, I'm influenced by the notion that, although regular lessons made rr.e a good enough pianist to get a first in the Illinois state contest when I was in high school, I didn't develop a passion for playing music. I think the roteness, the dutiful­ ness, overwhelmed any musicality I might have developed on my own. Isaac and Vanessa have initiated other musical experiences substi­ tuting for lessons. Isaac really enjoys singing in a university child­ ren's choir directed by a music professor. He r.as certainly learned a lot about music through this experi­ ence. I remember when Isaac audi­ tioned at age eight, the director was amazed that Isaac could "read" music well enough to sing an unknown song even though he couldn't really read music in the traditional sense of lines and spaces. It just seemed con­ sistent with the way Isaac has learned everrthing, kind of backwards or intuitive y - not at all the way most schools go about it. Isaac also started picking out boogie piano tunes on his own and for a while took lessons from a profes­ sional boogie piano player who said that he and one other adult student she had had were the only really "into it" pupils she had ever seen. I felt this was in part due to his good Suzuki piano teacher who never pushed him into "reading" music even when he got into Book Two, and in part due to the fact that he was able to quit when the minuets and other Suzuki materials were just not his bag. This year, Isaac actually asked to take Suzuki violin from Vanessa's old teacher. He picked up quite a lot by messing with Vanessa's violin when she took lessons two years ago. It'll be interesting to see what happens. He also is learning the ukelele on his own. Vanessa got pretty far along in Suzuki violin at age six but got to the point where she absolutely hated to practice. Even games and brioes-­ ~idn't help too much. After twelve months of lessons, she stopped (our last baby, India, was born at that time, contributing to my lack of patience with violin practicing). At age seven, after a few Suzuki piano lessons and a lot of messing around on her own, Vanessa decided she could sing well enough to audition for a part in Annie. She learned the song off a ta~tood up in front of a million people (that's what it seemed l~ke to her faint-hearted mother), and eventually became one of the two youngest orphans in the show. She learned a lot by that experience ­

also from all the dancing she does to records from the library and the com­ munity center dancing lessons she takes from time to time. She says she wants to take violin now, too ... Lucien (5) is going to take vio­ lin, too, mainly because when you're third, you feel left out sometimes. This is going to cost an arm and a leg, but, as Mike says, our kids are our hobby. Who needs a new car? I want to emphasize that there are no musical geniuses here, only very ordinary kids whose- parents want them to know that music is a very important part of life. We're not always sure about our approach. From reading GWS, I can see that it would be nice if we all made music as a fam­ ily more often. We do rr.ake a point of attending musical performances as much as possible. There are many free rehearsals, recitals, etc. that don't strain the budget as the tickets to the "biggies" do ... And from Penny Barker (OH): ... Neither Britt nor Maggie nor Dan write their improvisations down, so I would not say they "compose," nor are they especially interested in music theory or music history. They do love the sounds of music and will often come in-terring me how they just heard a bird's song which sound­ ed exactly like the first three notes of a particular sonata they know. They seem to hear music in the creek, the wind in the chimney, the rain on the metal roof of the barn, the night sounds of the insects and frogs on the pond, and all sorts of sounds that fill their environment. Perhaps you would consider them music lovers rather than musicians ... They are, however, serious about their music and gave up going to any group les­ sons or workshops because so many of the children just fooled around and were not serious or involved with their music at all. They now share their music with each other, Richard and me, their music instructors, and one or two friends. ... Our children are such an important part of our work here that many times their music must take a secondary position (though never a day passes without some time spent with their beloved music) ... Each of the children have from 10 to 12 lessons each year. The rest of the time they are on their own and learn from each other . .. DRAWING TOGETHER From Suzanne Alejandre (Spain):

... On our outing yesterday to a park called El Laberinto (the Laby­ rinth) I stuck two sketch pads, some loose paper and the pencils in a carry bag. After playing in the laby­ rinth, we went to a corner that had a fountain. Rich and I were comfortable sitting and talking while Niko and Lee were climbing around and playing. I thought to get out the sketch pads. Just as Rich and I started sketching, Niko and Lee raced back claiming their pads, so the four of us were drawing' (Rich and I used the loose paper). It was great - we drew for over an hour. Later we went to an out­ door cafe for a beer (often that's a problem because Niko and Lee drink their refreshment so fast that they're too bored to wait for us; often I bring books along). They wanted their pads again. They were

happy sketching away. Niko even sketched two of the people sitting at the next table. Lee was content drawing from his imagination ... KIDS USE CHEAP FILM From British Columbia:

... Here's a little trick I learned from a friend whose children are 3 and 5. She bought several rolls of outdated film very cheaply at a camera store and used them to show her kids how to load and take pic­ tures with her camera. She could re­ lax and enjoy the process because there was no possibility of "ruining good film." And most of the pictures (developed in-3 friend's darkroom) turned out just fine ...

THE TENTH GOOD THING ABOUT BARNEY-OY Judith Viorst ($2.95 + post). This is a book about a little boy whose cat has died. His parents and friends help him mourn. They hold a funeral, and the boy's mother sug­ gests he tell ten good things about the cat, but he can only think of nine. Later, with his father's help, he thinks of a tenth good thing ­ something that kindly and realistical­ ly helps the boy (and any child who reads the book) to see death as a part of the cycle of life. This is very important for children - talk of death is usually avoided or made too mysterious. This book can help child­ ren cope with the death of a pet or other loved one. It's also a good gen. eral introduction to death. Anna (3) likes to hear it read over and over. --- Mary Van Doren BEARS, PIRATES AND SILVER LACE, by Anne Fisher ($2.95 + post). Th~s book, written for younger readers, is a charming collection of stories, legends, and folk tales about life in California during the early days of the Spanish settlers. There were real bears, then, and real pirates, and a thriving Indian culture, and the com­ ing together of all of these with the culture of the Spanish missionaries made for unusual and interesting times. Children are the main charac­ ters, not to say the heroes, of many of these stories. A fascinating look at a part of our history which does not often appear in history books and about which I myself knew nothing whatever. STICKEEN by John Muir ($3.95 + post). This true story, by the great pioneer American naturalist, is about a small, no-account dog whom Muir found and befriended, who became his devoted companion and friend, whose courage and unquenchable will to live became evident when they were trapped in a fierce blizzard on the top of a large and dangerous glacier. The cli­ max, in which man and dog must cross a great crevasse on a knife-edge ridge, curved down like a suspension bridge, will have your heart pound­ ing. An exciting and inspiring story. THE LEOPARD by Giuseppe de Lam­ pedusa ($5.95 + post). This book, one of my special favorites for the 25 or so years I have known ~t, is a great modern example of what is often called a Comedy of Manners, a study in the form of a novel of a certain society at a certain time. The soci­ ety studied here is the decaying soci-

ety of Sicilian nobility a little over a century ago, when Garibald i and his revolutionaries united the separate states of Italy into a nation . The Leopard, the central char­ acter, is a Sicilian nobleman, and we see, through his very perceptive eyes and mind, h is narrow world which is coming to the end of an era, as he well understands. The author was himself Sicilian and a nobleman (fo r Italy still pre­ serves these titles), and wrote the book in the 1950s l argely for his own amusement - he made no attempt to get it published and it was only discov­ ered among his papers after his death. To whom might I compare him? A little bit to Dickens, but even more to Jane Austen; like her novels, THE LEOPARD looks at socie t y by looking very closely at a very small part of it, which is a very good way and per­ haps the best. In any case, he is a wonderful writer and this is a very funny book, and a revealing look at a society quite different from a n y we have ever known or are likely to see again . By the way, the great Italian film-maker Visconti, ten or twenty years ago, made a film of THE LEO­ PARD, which I saw last year when it was circulating around the coun tr y in its original uncut form. I have ' never seen a better film, or a better per­ formance than Burt Lancaster's in the title role . See it if you can - but if you can, read this lovely book first . THE BACHELOR OF ARTS, by V.S. Naraya n ($3.95 + post). Another de­ lightful book, and the second in a long series, abou t life in Malgudi, a small town i n the south of I nd ia, dur­ ing the 1930's. Our hero, Chandra, is in some ways very like the 10-year­ old Swami of SWAMI AND FRIENDS (see our catalog and GWS #37), only ten or so years o lder and much better organ ­ ized. Like Swami, when he has to study for an exam, he begins by mak­ ing an elaborate plan, but unlike Swami, he actually carries out the plan. When we first see him, he is a student at the local university, struggling to run the debating soci­ ety and at the same time t o do enough of hi s classwork to graduate. Much to our surprise and relief, h e does so. Before long, while trying to make a success of h is first job, he catc he s the briefest of glimpses of an un­ known girl at the edge of the river and falls madly in love with her. Hi s efforts to meet her and to get h is parents t o arra nge a marriage with her make the heart of this touching and funny book, written, like SWAMI, with the greatest gentleness and affection. Another fascinating look at a society i n so me wa ys like and in ot her ways very unlike our own . AMERICAN TONGUE AND CHEEK, by Jim Quinn ($4.95 + post). This very amusing, irreverent, but well­ researched book is about grammar, and also grammarians, the people who make (or try to make ) the "rules" which supposedly determine how the rest of us are supposed to write and speak. In recent years we have been afflict­ ed with a number of these self-styled experts in language, busily telling us how horrible, ignorant, barbaric, etc., it is to make this or that "grammatical mistake." Quinn does us all (and the English language) a great service by letting a lot of the hot air out of these people, and show­ ing that many of the "mistakes" they love to condemn have in fact been

GROWING WITHOUT SCHOOLING #42

us ed by the greatest wr iters in th e language, often for centuri es . He also shows that these igno rant " ex­ perts" did not even bother to check their ideas about right and wrong in the most obvious and easily available place, the Oxford English Dictionary, which shows, for every word it li sts, when and in whose writing it has appeared in the language. For Example, Qui nn quotes Edwin Newman as deploring the use of "Y ou know" in conversation and saying tha t it originated with poor blacks. But as Quinn points out, that use of the phrase has appeared in writings since 1350, including those of Chaucer, Addison, and "the excruciatingly polite conversations of Jane Austen's characters . " Quinn defends "hopeful­ ly, " "between you and I, " dangling participles, double negatives, "f inal­ ize," and dozens of other words and usages. In fact, he says, "If you are a native-born speaker of English you never make a mistake in grammar, because you don't know how : gr ammar is what you' say ." In a funny and eye - opening chap­ ter, he quotes grammaria n s of the past attacking words that t oday are perfectly acceptable (a nd some of whic h had been long established at the time of the attack), words such as I'banter,"

"talented,"

"reliable,"

and "influential." Edgar Allan Poe disapproved of "ignore," Benjamin Franklin objected to " opposed." And so on. The mo r al of the story, and Quinn ' s most important r eason for writing th e book, is that English (like all languages) constantl y grows and c hanges, and that the people who create that growth and c ha nge, and thus determine what is and is not "good" English, are not the writers of grammar books, but the people who use the l anguage most viv idl y, force­ fully, and therefore unforgettably. I recently read (perhaps here ) that Shakespeare invented over 1500 new words and phr ases - all of which would have been declared illegal by the grammarians of his time, if there had teen such people, which fortunate­ ly for him and us there were no t. So, if you want to write we ll, read good writers, not gr ammar books. An impor­ tant les son from an interesting a nd amusing book. SURVIVAL MATHEMATICS by Edward Williams ($ 7.95 + post). I h ave never seen a math book anything like th is one, and I don't know ""hy someone didn't write it a long time ago. Children trying to learn arithmetic are told all th e time ~hat they have to le arn it so that th ey will be able to do thi s o r that thing in real life, but the y never see, at Least in school, anything of these adult tasks that they supposedly wi ll one day be doing. In this book the y will see man y of the real-life things they will have to use arithmetic for in the adult world - photo reproductions of the actual forms they will have to deal with, such as restaurant checks, time cards, and bank deposit slips. There are also real pages from cata­ logs, real advertisements, real tax tables for figuring withholding, and so on. Along with these are examples of the arithmetic people have to do to fill these out, and explanations of how to do this arithmetic. Thus, the usually abstract and meaningless study of arithmetic is at least to some extent connected with the adult world which is so i nteresting to most children. And the explanations of how to do the arithmetic are clear enough

so th at the book "'ill surely be use­ ful to many adults. CITIES AND THE WEALTH OF NATIONS by Jane Jacobs ($14 .9 5 + post). This is one of the half-dozen best books on economics I have ever read, and about its particular chosen subject, which is economic growth, it is the best. Like Jane Jacobs ' s other books, THE ECONOMY OF CITIES and THE DEATH AND LIFE OF GREAT AMERICAN CITIES, it is lively, observant, witty, and above all realistic, a book to open the eyes and stir up the mind . If I were teaching an economics course, it and THE ECONOMY OF CITIES would be the first books I would have my stu­ dents read. As things stand, it will probably be a rare economics course in which it is even mentioned at all, precisely because it is so concrete and specific, so full of real-life examples. Most books on economics show us graphs, curves, tables, equa­ tions; Jane Jacobs shows us what, after all, economics is all about, which is people inventing, making, and buying and sel l ing things . I must make clear that the book is not about the very important but different question of whether we should have economic growth . Jane Jacobs fervently believes that we should, and in a world where billions live in the most wretched poverty, it is hard not to agree. Nor does it · dis­ cuss what kinds of economic growth are good and what kinds are not. It is a book about what makes economies lively, inventive, and productive; and since most people in every coun­ try in the world want their economies to be that way, and since most domes­ tic and international political argu­ ment is about how to make them that way, this is clearly a subject well worth writing about . A year or so from now we might rightly consider politically illiterate any holder of, or candidate for, political office wh o has not read and understood it . On a subject which is of such universal interest and about which so many thousands of people are continu­ a ll y talking and writing, it would seem almost impossible for anyone to invent a truly and wholly original idea, but Jacobs has done just this. What s he says is that it is not nati ons but cities - at least, cities of a certain kind - and the regions that surround them, that create most economic activity, invention, and growth, and that what we should be trying to understand and, as far as we can, create, a r e those conditions which are likely to produce and rr.ain­ tain such cities . What she then points out is that most national governments, whether capitalist, socialist, communist, or whatever, are doing the exac t opposite, and that as a result most of the world's cities, however fast th ey may be grow­ ing in size, are bec oming unhealthy and unproductive. From this comes many of the economic problems that are plaguing eve ry country i n the world. What has all thi s to do wit h h omesc hooling ? Directly, and even indirectly, nothing at all . But I think many GWS readers will enjoy and even love this book (and Jacobs' earlier books) for the reasons that I do , that they help me see things I never saw before, and make sense ou t of what before had see med a rr.ystery. On the whole, I don't know wh at t o do with this new knowledge and under­ standing , except maybe to urge ot her pe ople, as I am now, to read these books. But I feel much stronger and


20 happier for having gained it. One other thing . I hope and believe that this book (and THE ECON­ OMY OF CITIES) may help many people to shake off the romantic and wholly mistaken notion that cities are nothing but sinister mistakes living as parasites off the virtuous and healthy countryside, and if the cit­ ies would just somehow disappear everyone would live happily ever after. As Jane Jacobs clearly shows, this is not so. As she also shows, most of our cities are not healthy, and growing less so all the time . But the remedy is not to think about how to do away with them altogether, which is in any case impossible, but to think about how to restore them to health, and on this vital subject no one has more interesting things to say than she. IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE, by Waterman & Peters ($8 . 95 + post). This is a book about the management of business corporations, a book which like THEORY Z, also in our cata­ log, may be directly useful many par­ ticular homeschooling families and to homeschoolers in general. As a result of the recent great interest in Japanese methods of cor­ porate management, so different and often (as we have learned to our dis­ may) so much more successful than our own, many people have begun to ask themselves whether some American cor­ porations may not have invented what might be called an American version of Theory Z, ways of running a large corporation which are on the one hand unorthodox and on the other hand un­ questionably successful . This book is the result of the efforts of two men (and the organization they work with) to find an answer to that question. Their answer is that yes, there is an American style of corporate manage­ ment which has much in common with what we have come to think of as Japanese methods, and that yes, it has been and is outstandingly success­ ful, in corporations as well known as IBM, Hewlett Packard, Proctor and Gamble, and others. Put very simply, it is this, that if you treat people as human beings rather than as re­ placeable cogs in a big machine, you get better results. What the book does for home­ schoolers is to give them a powerful answer to the schools' so-familiar argument that if children are not sub­ jected, for all the years of their growing up, to the harsh pressure of most schools, they will be unready for the "real world" in which they are going to have to live and work as adults, a world which in the myth­ ology of schools is for the most part heartless, ruthless, and cruel. The book shows clearly that these ideas about the Real World are wrong, and with them, virtually all of the schools' ideas about how to deal with their own students. Thus to take one example, almost all schools assume that the way to get the best work from students is to raise standards so high that only a small minority of students can feel that they have done really well. Teachers and schools that do other­ wise are contemptuously accused of the terrible crime of "grade infla­ tion." But the successful corpora­ tions studied in this book know bet­ ter. They know that to be judged a failure, by others and oneself, does not spur people on to do better work, but demoralizes them and makes them work less well. Success breeds more success; failure breeds more failure.

As a result, when they have to set standards of job performan ce, they try to set them at a level such that the great majority of their people can feel they have done good work . In short, the book is a rich mine of arguments against most of the conventional practices of schools, and by contrast in favor of the ways in which many homeschooling parents deal with their own children. It also shows us what some of us might not have suspected, that great corpora­ tions do not have to be heartless, that even in business nice guys are as likely to finish first as last, and that running a large corporation can be not only a highly creative activity but one which at least to some degree serves the higher inter­ ests of humanity. Along with all of this, it is a very clearly written and fascinating book, which deserves to be the best-seller it has been. THE COMPLETE HOME EDUCATOR, by Mario Pagnoni; Foreword by John Holt ($10 . 95 + post) . This clear, helpful, encouraging, and often very funny book is in fact two books . One is a book about computers - how they work, how parents and children can use them at home, and how Mario Pagnoni and his two boys are using them in their home. It is by far the clearest expla­ nation of this difficult and rather forbidding subject that I have seen. Indeed, it is one of the best explana­ tions I have ever seen of any scien­ tific subject. Mario is a superb explainer - if the schools only had more people who were as good as he is at making things clear, and what is even more important, cared as much as he does about making things clear, they would be in much better shape. And most computer companies would be smart to pay him to write their instructional materials, which up till now have been for the most part almost ludicrously hard to understand. The other and main part of the book is about homeschooling . More specifically, it is about how and why Mario took his two boys out of school and, taking a year's leave pf absence from his own job, taught them at home . It is one of the very best of the growing list of books that have been written about this increasingly important subject. Among th~ books it is in one sense unique, for Mario is himself and has been for some years a regular public school classroom teach­ er . In principle, he believes in pub­ lic school, believes, as indeed I do, that, good or bad, they will be with us for a long time and that most children will be going to them. But out of his own first-hand experience he has come to believe, like many other public school teachers and administrators before him - the ranks of homeschoolers are full of these ­ that the schools cannot possibly give his children as good an education as he can give them - or rather, help them to get for themselves . His list of reasons for doing this is as good a condensed argument for homeschool­ ing as one can find anywhere, and his list of ways in which parents can decide whether or not they are well­ suited to do this is every bit as helpful. In his preface Mario Pagnoni speaks of "employing home school tech­ niques on a part-time basis." This option, which many schools press on parents when they first talk about homeschooling - "Why don't you keep sending them to school, and teach them any extra stuff you want at home after school?" - may seem at first to

offer the best of both worlds. But in fact it almost never works. A great many of the people who are now home­ schooling full-time did in fact begin by.trying to do it part-time, and soon gave it up, because the schools ate up so much of their children's time that the family had nothing left. Indeed, as we see in Chapter 2, the Pagnonis themselves went to full-time homeschooling for just this reason, to get some time for the fami­ ly's own interests and pursuits. I should make clear that Mario Pagnoni is not writing here another indictment of schools. Quite the con­ trary; he goes out of his way to be fair and charitable to them, says quite rightly that teachers are try­ ing to do the best they can and are hampered by many things not under their control. The conclusion is in­ escapable nonetheless - the schools are to an astonishing degree unintel­ ligent and mean-spirited places, and there are no signs that they are go­ ing to get better. Thus he tells about one of his boys, who while still very young was being repeatedly bullied and beaten up in the schoolyard, and about his own futile efforts to get the school to do anything about it. The incident is as typical as it is deplorable. The schools hardly even try any more to maintain, in the little kingdoms they control, the kind of minimal standards of public order and safety which we take for granted even in our most troubled cities. Thus if someone should punch me in the face in the streets of Boston, something that by the way has never happened to me in my life, everyone would admit that this was a crime, and society would do its best to catch and punish the criminal. But if some bigger kid beats up a smaller kid in the recess yard, the schools are more and more likely to say that this is a neces­ sary and healthy social experience. Much of the book, as I have said, is about computers and how par­ ents and children might use them, if they choose. I want to emphasize very strongly that they can in fact choose not to use them. To be sure, as the saying goes, computers are not going to go away. But neither are automo­ biles, television, airplanes, or ball point pens. All of these are tools, useful for people who have a use for them, otherwise not. People can de­ cide for themselves which if any of these tools are worth the bother of having. If you should ever find that you have real need to learn about com­ puters, you can always do so by read­ ing one of Mario Pagnoni's books, for I suspect, and certainly hope, that this most helpful, encouraging, and entertaining book will be the first of a long line.

SUBSCRIPTIONS Our current policy starts all subscr i p­ tions with the next issue publ is hed. Rates are: $15 for 6 issues, $27 for 12 issues, $36 for 18 issues. GWS is published every other month. A single issue costs $2.50. For all subs or orders of GWS (not books), please send check or money oraers pay­ able to GROWING WITHOUT SCHOOLING. Fore~~n payments must be either money orders 1n funds or checks drawn on US banks. We can't afford to accept personal checks on Canadian accounts, even if they have "US funds" written on them. Outside of North America, add $10 per year for airmail (other­ wise, allow 2-3 months for surface mail) .
