The author, K T Margaret believes that life is an open classroom and education a process that takes place continuously through a person’s life. Inspired by the initiatives of social activists worldwide in the field of education, she struggled through her own experiments to discover creative alternatives even while working within a flawed system. Through this account of her personal journey she shows that education goes beyond the mechanics of teaching and learning, to enrich the teacher and the taught. This book is essential reading for creative, thinking teachers as well as those interested in education.

K T Margaret has taught in a variety of settings – formal and non-formal, elite and underprivileged – and has worked as a trainer of teachers, urban and rural.
