"Education for a better world - learner centred approaches and inspiring examples"
Jerry Mintz, founder of AERO (Alternative Education Resource Organisation),
a writer, director of a democratic school for many years and a well known
proponent of democratic, child-centered education in the United States will
be speaking at The Family School in Brixton, London on Sunday March 28th in
This is an opportunity to hear about democratic education and the new
paradigm that many alternative schools are using when making the decision to
trust children as learners. It is necessary to provide the resources and
the space for children to learn, as we do at The Family School and then
allow the child the freedom to get on with it! There will be a charge of £6
per adult to attend. You can learn more about Jerry by visiting
www.educationrevolution.org and more about our new small alternative primary
school at www.familyschool.co.uk.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in
attending. Infants are welcome but we must otherwise limit the event to
adults and teenagers because of limitations on space.
If you are interested in the empowerment of children, have ever thought of
attending or starting or enrolling your child in a democratic or alternative
school, or wish to help your school become more democratic, or choose to
teach your child at home, this will be an interesting event; please do join
The Family School at Larkhall
Where families are engaged with learning, and learning is part of living.
