Don’t Go Back to School, A Handbook for Independent Learning

Kio Stark, an author who teaches at NYU’s graduate program ITP, has launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter to get her handbook on independent learning, Don’t Go Back to School, off the ground.

If you’re thinking about going back to school or about the possibility of self-taught learning, Don’t Go Back to School will help you figure out if you can do it on your own—and it’ll show you how. The book explains the basic infrastructure that school provides—things like resources, expertise, evaluation, and a learning community. And it features profiles of fascinating, self-taught people, showcasing the practical ways they meet those needs.
