John Holt’s books are really great:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Learning-All-Time-John-Holt/dp/0201550911/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1299086089&sr=1-4

http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Children-Fail-John-Holt/dp/0140135561/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1299086089&sr=1-8

Grace Llewellyn’s books are amazing too:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Teenage-Liberation-Handbook-School-Education/dp/0962959170/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1289994360&sr=1-3-fkmr0

Happy reading, Bianca
