Leila Berg event at Housman’s Bookshop

On Wednesday 22nd May 2013, we organised an event in Housman’s bookshop about Leila Berg (1917-2012): writer, rebel, radical educator. Berg was an important figure in the UK de-schooling movement and argued that:

‘We compartmentalise everything. We compartmentalise ages…as if children weren’t aiming to be grown-up, as if old people had never been children.’
