I had the pleasure of speaking this evening with Lenore Skenazy, the columnist who wrote “Why I Let My 9-Year-Old Take The Subway Alone” for the now sadly deceased New York Sun.  Skenazy’s provocative column led to a book deal with Wiley.  Her upcoming book,  Free Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Enjoyed Without Going Nuts With Worry, is due out this spring.  Skenazy also has a website, freerangekids.wordpress.com.   Since I think I agree with Skenazy’s ideas about education, I can’t wait to read her book.
