A new book called The School for Life: N.F.S. Grundtvig on the Education for the People. by Clay Warren, a professor of communication at George Washington University, Is discussed in a ten-minute video on Reason TV. http://reason.com/reasontv/2013/10/09/folk-high-schools-help-students-reinvent In the video the interviewer and author talk about participatory education, MOOCs, The Highlander Center, Libertarianism and the origins of the Danish Folk School Movement, created by N.F.S. Gruntvig. Adult educators who are interested in non-formal education, labor education schools, education for social justice, popular education and lifelong learning might find this interview – and perhaps the book – of interest.
Anyone read the book yet?
