Free to Learn follows a handful of these children courageously meeting the daily challenges of hope, acceptance, loss, friendship, conflict, and the difficult task of deciding, for themselves, what to do with each day.
Please also consider purchasing a copy of Free to Learn to support AERO and the filmmakers who gave so much time and energy into making this wonderful resource.
Free to Learn is a 70 minute documentary that offers a “fly on the wall” perspective of the daily happenings at The Free School in Albany, New York. Like many of today’s radical and democratic schools, The Free School expects children to decide for themselves how to spend their days.
Before commencing the official meeting the three founders talked about a few notes and ideas: Erin has communicated with author Peter Gray about buying wholesale copies of Free to Learn that we could distribute to interested families; we have been looking into Robert’s Rules of Order but thinking about a stripped down version to make meetings more efficient; briefly discussed asking our contact at the Montessori Co-op in Omaha about references to education lawyers.
