Albert is a husband, father, writer, and storyteller. He is the author of five books on homeschooling and alternative education – Dismantling the Inner School: Homeschooling and the Curriculum of Abundance (Hunt Press, 2012); What Really Matters (with Joyce Reed, The Alternate Press, 2010); Have Fun. Learn Stuff. Grow. Homeschooling and the Curriculum of Love (Common Courage Press, 2006); Homeschooling and the Voyage of Self-Discovery (Common Courage Press, 2003); and And the Skylark Sings with Me: Adventures in Homeschooling and Community Based-Education (New Society Publishers, 1999). He has edited two books about the uses of storytelling, The Healing Heart ~ Families and The Healing Heart ~ Communities (New Society Publishers, 2003), and edited a book about land reform struggles among Dalits (so-called “untouchables”) in South India - The Color of Freedom (Common Courage Press, 2005) - with which he has been associated for almost 35 years. (To learn about the work, visit the foundation he founded at <a href="http://www.friendsoflafti.org">www.friendsoflafti.org</a>). His writing has appeared in scores of magazines and journals worldwide, ranging from Life Learning Magazine to the Journal of the American Philosophical Society, and he writes a regular column “My Word” for Home Education Magazine. He holds lots of prestigious degrees, which he is willing to trade for exotic musical instruments, and was the founder of New Society Publishers (<a href="http://www.newsociety.com">www.newsociety.com</a>), and he is still singing opera. His homeschooling website is <a href="http://www.skylarksings.com">www.skylarksings.com</a><br /> <br /> David lives in Olympia, Washington with wife and partner Ellen, fewer pets - now only Welsh Terrier Remy, Echo the eight-year-old bunny who thinks he’s a dog, and Ugo the American Singer canary - and tours the world, spreading trouble. He serves as Board Chairman of Friendly Water for the World (<a href="http://www.friendlywater.net">www.friendlywater.net</a>) where he promotes the use of biosand water filters, a low-cost, locally produced, household technology that can reduce bacterial and viral contaminants in drinking water among the world’s poor by up to 99%. (He trains homeschooling and other families in the work as well.) So you may find him virtually anywhere from South India to South Sudan.
