Even though they are several decades old (I think at least one was published in the 60s) I really have enjoyed reading and rereading Johh Holt's How Children Learn and How Children Fail. These books are favorites of unschoolers, but have a lot of insight that is helpful for all homeschoolers, or parents for that matter.
Also, entertainingly radical John Taylor Gatto has lots to say in criticism of compulsory schooling. He's a former teacher of the year in NY and has used this influence to take on the system.
