The Brooklyn Free school is truly unlike any school i've ever heard of- first off, the kids vote on everything. Anything from major to minor decisions- truly the definition of a democracy. Im sure the thought of NO GRADING, students making the rules, and teachers who aren't necessarily certified, terrifies the majority of parents BUT think about what the benefits might be? Kids who feel confident and relaxed in their school environment. No competition, empowerment by allowing kids to actually have a say plus teachers who are passionate and actually want to be in the classroom making a difference- sounds about awesome right?
