According to the Alternativeness Education Resource Organization, (or AERO), “There is no monolithic definition of democratic education or democratic schools. But what we mean here is “education in which young people have the freedom to organize their daily activities, and in which there is equality and democratic decision-making among young people and adults.” Democratic schools take many forms and include public and private alternatives and homeschool resource centers. In essence, Democratic education is an educational ideal in which democracy is both a goal and a method of learning. It brings democratic values to education and can include self-determination within a community of equals, as well as such values as justice, respect and trust. In this episode we explore these ideas and more from a former student, a democratic school founder and a documentary film maker.
