Alternatives in Education aims to raise awareness about different ways of educating and to support people to get involved in transforming their schools or getting involved in creating alternatives.
It asks the big questions. What should education be for? How do children best learn? How can we ensure the curriculum is relevant? How can we foster the values and skills that young people need to thrive? It also proposes a path, from where we are now to schools that truly answer these questions in a positive and inspiring way.
There are lots of examples of innovative schools, both in the state and alternative sector, to learn from. The site also provides ideas and resources for how to give everyone a voice – students, parents, teachers – and shows how incorporating ideas that come from this can create much stronger schools.
