Abstract

An extract from The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology which explains the ‘de-schooling movement’ which flourished in the 1970s in advanced capitalist societies. De-schoolers opposed the institutionalisation of learning, arguing that state-controlled socialisation inhibited the expression of individual freedom and creativity.
