AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO LOOK AT EDUCATION FOR A BETTER WORLD

alternative education Welcome to my website where I try to show that there are natural, viable
and better education alternatives than a childhood spent in school.

Everything on this website is free. Learning and teaching resources, articles, podcasts and up-to-date education news.

CONSIDER THESE QUESTIONS:

Why do parents send their children to school? Where did this idea of schools come from? Why are children grouped by age when the rest of human society operates in mixed age groups? Why is there so much bad behaviour in schools? Why do schools give students exams? Should children be assessed at all? Who is deciding on the curriculum? Is what the students are learning in school actually true? How and why do schools reward and punish certain behaviours? Why do students study subjects in one-hour lessons? Why aren't children given a choice about going to school? Are schools worth all the money spent? Why do so few parents educate their own children?

If you are not sure about the answers to any of these questions, I hope you may find the information on this website quite eye-opening!

Get oriented to an alternative educational view!

GET ORIENTATED...

My educational view is not mainstream and many people will find my views extreme, strange, dangerous or ridiculous. People who think that I am wrong also believe that sending children to schools and taking exams is normal and necessary.

These people are disoriented. Their own experiences of school and education, those of their parents, and the overwhelming media and political consensus about education have left them thinking that the status quo is normality and anything different such as education without schools would be impossible.

To understand my educational perspective, I have created seven coordinates of self-evident truths which I hope will change your mind.
