First Sentence
My political attitude is that of anarchism, which is the definition written for the Encyclopaedia Britannica by its best-known spokesman, Peter Kropotkin, is "the name given to a principle or theory of life and conduct under which society is conceived without government - harmony in such a society being obtained, not by submission to law, or by obedience to any authority, but by free agreements concluded between the various groups, territorial and professional, freely constituted for the sake of production and consumption, as also for the satisfaction of the infinite variety of needs and aspirations of a civilised being".1 Read the first page

Colin Ward - The Neglected Visionary of Learning in Places 13 Aug. 2008
By Michael M. Morris - Published on
Too few American educators know the thoughtful and visionary writings of Colin Ward. A longtime educational activist and philosopher in Great Britain, Ward's work has been much neglected by American scholars and practioners. In this thoughtful and inspiring set of essays, he outlines a very simple fact - "all places are learning places." He illustrates this point with stories from the field of ecological oriented education, school reform in England, practical learning connections with the environment, schooling in the city (even when these settings can seem hostile environments for the young), and what it means to promote empowerment oriented learning. Ward's life work is about shifting our ideas and conceptions of where learning occurs and how - here he paints a compelling picture of what not only can be but what is happening in the UK.
