7pm, Thursday March 29

Popps Packing, 12138 Saint Aubin, Hamtramck, MI 48212

Screening of “Free to Learn,” followed by an open discussion on free schools and radical pedagogy.

“Free to Learn is a 70 minute documentary by Jeff Root & Bhawin Suchak that offers a “fly on the wall” perspective of the daily happenings at The Free School in Albany, New York.  For over thirty years this radical experiment in American education has offered its students complete freedom over their learning. There are no mandatory classes, no grades, tests, or homework, and rules are generally avoided. As a last resort, rules are created democratically by students and teachers, often at the prompting of a student.”

Please join us earlier at 6pm to tour, and hear the background to, Popps Packing’s new child designed and constructed playground with Faina Lerman.
