Here is an old Donahue interview with John Holt:
As I watched the video, I was struck by the following thoughts:
- The objections to homeschooling in 1981 were much the same as the objections to homeschooling today
- People dressed much more modestly and formally in public 30-odd years ago than they do today
- People were much more polite, even when strongly disagreeing, 30+ years ago than they are today
- The meme of Christians as “bigots,” etc. was being played even back in 1981
In 1981, my country still considered itself to be Christian. Looking at this video, I can’t say that the changes in Canadian society over the past 30+ years have all been positive.
