Journalist Jamie Gumbrecht ran a piece about “Free to Be’s” impact in the classroom for’s “Schools of Thought” education blog.  During our interview, Laura Lovett and I covered everything from non-sexist toys and curriculum innovations to the popularity of “Glad to Have a Friend Like You” among music teachers during the 1970s.  With quotes from contributors Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Barbara Sprung, and Miriam Peskowitz–as well as a photograph of Michael Jackson and Roberta Flack and a video clip of “William’s Doll”–the piece generated dozens of positive comments from readers.
