Radical Child Raising & What Schools Can Be
Topics for study & discussion will include history & philosophy of pre-K-12 Grade "free schools," democratic governance with youth, adult/youth roles & partnerships, "hidden" curriculum, unschooling, & youth liberation/empowerment. The philosophies & practices of Second Foundation School (the Twin Cities' oldest/only K-12 democratic, independent school) will be examined as a local example of a thriving youth-centered community.
