  Here is some information I have compiled about non-coercive theories as well as practice of education or learning. They include historic and current approaches, all -- I think -- intellectually honest. Rousseau and Tolstoy are interesting to read on this question, as are John Taylor Gatto, John Holt, David Albert, etc. etc. on my list.
I hope this helps.
