Democratic Schools: A Film About The Desire To Learn (2006) (trailer)
4.0 · 1

At democratic schools pupils themselves can decide, what and how they want to learn. There are no curricula, no marks and examinations are voluntary. Pupils and teachers have the same rights and organize their school together. With decisions everyone has a voice... Can that be done well?
