In the previous three installments (Alternative School vs Public SchoolStart a School by Sharing Alternative Education Ideas, and Starting a School of Your Own) we've done our best to help you with starting a school by providing the outlines of an educational philosophy, nuts and bolts advice, and inspiration. Are you still motivated?

So Do It! If there are new ways coming in, and if schools are at the heart of cultures, then free schools for people into the new ways should be profoundly different than what we've known. That's how we compiled the "changes" chart — trying to trace the changes behind the new ways, and link them to "happenings" in free schools. Again, it's only a beginning gesture towards what we hope is a continuing conversation on education.
