First published in the mid 1960s, How Children Fail began an education reform movement that continues today. In his 1982 edition, John Holt added new insights into how children investigate the world, into the perennial problems of classroom learning, grading, testing, and into the role of the trust and authority in every learning situation. His understanding of children, the clarity of his thought, and his deep affection for children have made both How Children Fail and its companion volume, How Children Learn, enduring classics.

John Holt provides great insight into how kids respond to schooling which must be distinguished from genuine education. Schooling consists of pointless dull and often stressful rituals that children develop various strategies to cope with. Testing, grading, and judging students creates a fear of failure in children that becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy for far too many. For Holt, real learning is the work of the learner not the teacher.
