Fifty Years was first published in England in by George Allen and Unwin, and was later renamed Children's Freedom: A. S.

  All prize-giving and marks and exams sidetrack proper personality development. Only pedants claim that learning from books is education. Books are the least important apparatus in a school.

In my opinion, his book is of great importance because it represents the true principle of education without fear.
