Alternative Education

AE-Red This SIG stands for educational interests underpinned by significant democracy and autonomy. We don’t have many answers (yet and even then we’ll be careful) but we do know that there is a world of ‘difference’ educationally speaking, which is other from a lot of what passes as ‘acceptable’ or excellent education. Our SIG stands for the active debate and development of scholarship, theory and practice knowledge about education done on terms of community and freedom. We don’t agree with education without Voice, voices, democratic means and manners and autonomous interests pursued. So this SIG serves as a SPACE for alternative educators and we aim to organise ourselves as a community in as democratic a manner as is possible. We welcome alternative educational work including the school, from before and beyond the school – to include university teaching and learning and towards the Fourth Age also. We have an international membership. We deal with the history, present and future of education. Join us! You are very welcome to our community. Please click here.
