Term Definition
deschooling

a term referring to a radical movement which flourished in the late 1960s early 1970s and which argued that compulsory schooling should be abolished principally because of its role in social control and indoctrination. A key proponent was Ivan Illich (1926-2002) who promoted the alternative of loosely-based community 'learning webs'.
