About the Book

There is a germ of a quiet revolution growing in our educational system. The very funny, highly irreverent, and yet sensible John Blessington has planted that seed in Let My Children Work!. His revolution involved throwing out the whole ridiculous concept of homework, of tying home and school life together, or recommending (yes, heartily endorsing!) T.V. as a learning tool, and of recognizing the home as the richest learning center available. This is a revolution that goes to the roots of the way all of us live. In Let My Children Work! Jack Blessington points the way to a saner and more complete way of educating our children.
