Democratic Free School meeting problems, the basics of good meetings, creating the templates.
We say that democratic schools begin with freedom, not democratic meetings. It’s the freedom that students bring to the meeting that creates a truly Democratic Free School.
We finish off the first of two weeks about Democratic Meetings with some remarks about the podcast.
We discuss the details of democratic meetings and how they must, crucially, be connected ro freedom.
We discuss optional lessons, an essential part of the Democratic Free School engine. Also Reduced Curriculum and Freak Out subjects.
