Recollecting Homer Lane

A. S. NEILL, who kindly sent us these recollections of Homer Lane, is headmaster of Summerhill School. His example, and his seventeen books (including “That Dreadful School”, “The Free Child” and “Summerhill”) have had a widespread and liberating influence on schools everywhere. His article “Summerhill vs. Standard Education” appeared in ANARCHY 11.
