Event Information

As a society, we've come to believe that learning can only happen within a traditional school environment. Sending your child to a public or private school for 12 years has become the status quo. 

But what if, as individuals and collectives, we were to take education into our own hands?

This is a concept known as a democratic school.

A democratic school is a school where the students are trusted to take responsibility for their own lives and learning, and for the school community. 

Students have the ability to dictate their own learning journey and structure their education to suit their own personal preferences. 

Jerry Mintz has been a leading voice in the alternative school movement for over 30 years. In addition to his seventeen years as a public and independent alternative school principal and teacher, he has also helped found more than one hundred public and private alternative schools and organizations. He has lectured and consulted in more than twenty-five countries around the world.

In 1989, he founded the Alternative Education Resource Organization and since then has served as its Director. Jerry was the first executive director of the National Coalition of Alternative Community Schools (NCACS), and was a founding member of the International Democratic Education Conference (IDEC).

In this upcoming event, Jerry will share his knowledge and expertise on the world of alternative education and share practical tips on how you could start your own micro-school.
