Abstract

More than one million American children are schooled by their parents. As their ranks grow, home schoolers are making headlines by winning national spelling bees and excelling at elite universities. The few studies conducted suggest that homeschooled children are academically successful and remarkably well socialized. Yet we still know little about this alternative to one of society's most fundamental institutions. Beyond a vague notion of children reading around the kitchen table, we don't know what home schooling looks like from the inside. Sociologist Mitchell Stevens goes behind the scenes of the homeschool movement and into the homes and meetings of home schoolers. What he finds are two very different kinds of home education--one rooted in the liberal alternative school movement of the 1960s and 1970s and one stemming from the Christian day school movement of the same era. Stevens explains how this dual history shapes the meaning and practice of home schooling today. In the process, he introduces us to an unlikely mix of parents (including fundamentalist Protestants, pagans, naturalists, and educational radicals) and notes the core values on which they agree: the sanctity of childhood and the primacy of family in the face of a highly competitive, bureaucratized society. Kingdom of Children aptly places home schoolers within longer traditions of American social activism. It reveals that home schooling is not a random collection of individuals but an elaborate social movement with its own celebrities, networks, and characteristic lifeways. Stevens shows how home schoolers have built their philosophical and religious convictions into the practical structure of the cause, and documents the political consequences of their success at doing so. Ultimately, the history of home schooling serves as a parable about the organizational strategies of the progressive left and the religious right since the 1960s.Kingdom of Children shows what happens when progressive ideals meet conventional politics, demonstrates the extraordinary political capacity of conservative Protestantism, and explains the subtle ways in which cultural sensibility shapes social movement outcomes more generally.

Abstract

Aujourd’hui, les mots « éducation » et « école » sont devenus quasiment synonymes. Pourtant, l’école ne représente qu’une infime partie de l’histoire de l’éducation. Comment cet amalgame a-t-il pu se produire? Pourquoi en sommes-nous arrivés à croire que l’éducation de nos enfants devait relever de la responsabilité de l’État? Quelles logiques sont à l’œuvre derrière cette vaste entreprise de normalisation des masses ? Une éducation sans école, qui se présente comme une longue lettre à Ivan Illich, porte un regard critique sur l’institutionnalisation de l’éducation. À la lumière des grandes théories de la pédagogie (Sébastien Faure, Célestin Freinet, Edgar Morin, David Sobel...), Thierry Pardo soutient que les parents sont souvent les mieux placés pour éduquer leurs enfants et il examine diverses alternatives éducatives : la transmission du savoir dans les sociétés traditionnelles et autochtones, l’« éducation à domicile » (unschooling) et celle prodiguée par le biais du voyage. Cet ouvrage au souffle poétique et libertaire est traversé par la métaphore du pirate, alliance de l’imagination et de la révolte, de l’utopie et de l’aventure. Sa proposition, inscrite dans le champ de l’éducation relative à l’environnement, s’appuie notamment sur le contact avec la nature et l’insertion dans un réseau social fécond. Dans cette nouvelle édition revue et augmentée, Thierry Pardo livre un témoignage beaucoup plus personnel de ses 10 années de pratique d'« éducation pirate » avec ses deux enfants et revient sur l'évolution des législations sur l'éducation en dehors des murs de l'école, tant en France qu'au Québec (4e de couv.)
