    In this easy to read book Joel Hammnd describes his journey from enthusiastic and later miserable public school teacher to a founder and director of a self directed learning centre. Teachers who join the profession because they love working with kids would likely resonate with Joel’s frustration with the system that gave him only one option: To make kids miserable. He wanted to help them thrive. Despite his love for kids and his best efforts as a teacher, there was a higher master to serve – the institution, with it’s standardised tests, coercion and lack of flexibility. He wanted to make kids thrive. That is what many teachers want. And Joel describes a powerful alternative for teachers.With the help Ken Danford, founder of Northstar Self Directed Learning for Teens, Joel and his team team established the Princeton Learning Cooperative. Now Joel and Ken and many others provide a comprehensive support system for others trying to establish a similar centre through an organisation called Liberated Learners.The author steers clear of too much education philosophy. Rather it is an honest part autobiographical story, sharing his reflections, lessons learned and the structures and mechanisms to liberate himself and create a place where teachers and young people can thrive. Also included are short pieces by teen members are other liberated learners on their experiences and adventures in attending or creating a self directed learning centre. His own journey of learning and unlearning are also an example of what self directed education looks like.But this book is for more than teachers held hostage to the system, or people trying to build a self directed learning centre. It is also a fantastic way to showcase in a real and practical way a powerful possibility of an alternative to compulsory, coercive schooling and what self directed education can look like. It is also a fantastic book to read if you reading about people living their passions.
