Our education researcher Peter Gray is at it again. This should be an interesting project. To back what he says in his introduction follow this link for a summery of what Alexander Inglis said about education in 1918: https://theinnovativeeducator.blogspot.com/2013/02/6-principals-of-secondary-education.html

After many years of wondering why there were no democratic schools in France, we were shocked to hear about this explosion of schools when we met with EUDEC this summer in Finland. Starting only in 2014, there are currently 17 democratic schools and 35 (yes - 35) start-up projects! Ramin gives us some input into what is going on in France. We are extremely happy to have all these people onboard.
