Free Schooling

Here's a bunch of cool video clips from the site starting with Nellie Dick and the Modern School-a preview of a two-hour interview with a 96-year-old pioneer in the alternative education movement. Born in the Ukraine of Jewish, anarchist parents in 1893, she started anarchist schools in England back in 1908, went to the US in 1917 to teach at the Modern School in New Jersey. The Modern school movement was founded on the ideas of the Spanish anarchist educator Francisco Ferrer.

October 11th we (Alternative Education Resource Organization, are launching "The Modern School Movement Week." The 13th is the 100th anniversary of Ferrer's death, so we'll release one Modern School video, including the entirety of this one, per day along with lots of other great resources! You can stay informed about it by subscribing to our newsletter on our website.
