When I was about 14 years old, I read a bunch of John Holt books that were at my hometown library. John Holt had just died a year before, which I didn’t know, which is probably why they suddenly had all of his books.
Now that was 30+ years ago now – I was a kid but influenced how I thought of learning and stuff. Just now, I came across a video interview with him from around that time prior to his death. I don’t think I’d ever heard or seen him speak, so this is interesting.
