In a radical rethinking of compulsory education, this book, written by a proud parent and home-educator of four, explodes the myth that state education is free education, arguing that institutional education not only bears a significant financial cost, but is detrimental to the freedom and autonomy of children, parents, or members of society alike. The author proposes that home education is a salient, positive and critical alternative to paying the costs of institutional education, as it promotes autonomy and freeom in education as well as in life.
