They include: Cevin Soling: Why We Need Alternatives , Peter Gray: The Importance of Play, Pat Farenga: Homeschooling and Unschooling, Peter A. Bergson: Open Connections: One Approach to Partnership Education

I've just finished watching Cevin Soling's speech and loved it. He brings out the hidden realities of compulsory schooling and the harm that even the best of teachers are doing to their students. I felt like he was really speaking my mind, reflecting back on my 1-yr experience with Teach For India. These ought to be taken and shown to teachers everywhere.
