What is a Democratic Education?
A democratic school is a student-run, student-centered learning environment. Students are given a great deal of responsibility for running the school as well as over their individual pursuits. They act as officers responsible for running meetings, creating and executing school rules, dealing with student behavior, and more. Staff act as mentors or advisers who help provide support and help to solve problems. Democratic schools are meant for any students or families interested in creating truly self-directed young adults.
