“Under One Roof”
THE BENIGN SCHOOL
by Edwin M. Swengel, Ph.D
 

Introduction

Where there is no vision, the people perish.
– Proverbs, 29:18. King James Version

Human history is in essence a history of ideas.
H.G. Wells, Outline of History, 1920, Ch. 40

Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
Ibid., Ch. 41

You can’t solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that created it.
Albert Einstein

Can you believe that somewhere in the United States exists a very small group of persons with the power to set in motion forces that could prevent the catastrophe that Wells prophesied?

Can you guess what this group is? (No one I have asked this question has yet identified it.)

 
 
Teachers will be particularly interested in Letters From Joan, describing a teacher's experience with some basic elements of "family-style" education.
