How to Grow a Free School
"The Albany Free School is the oldest inner-city democratic school in the country. Founded in 1969 by Mary Leue, the school is a racially and economically diverse learning community of 60 students ages 3-14, teachers, and volunteers. Academics are entirely non-coercive and all members of the school community have decision-making power. This workshop includes a panel of teachers and students explaining how the Free School has been built and sustained."
