Please visit the Baltimore Free School’s website (freeschool.redemmas.org) before voting or commenting, which the following excerpt is from:
“The Baltimore Free School is a grassroots, volunteer-run and community-funded project. Building upon a long tradition of horizontal organizing, collaborative learning and participatory education, we believe that the empowerment of people of all ages and backgrounds to share and learn is vital to the health of any community. To that end, we work toward creating a space where the exchange of ideas can occur without the exchange of money; a space where we can learn to relate to each other in new and meaningful ways. By building this infrastructure, we hope to form a microcosm of the world in which we want to live.”
The Baltimore Free School allows access to free classes and workshops on any topic (seriously, check out some of the course listings) and anyone can volunteer to teach a course on whatever they wish. Why not have something like this in Bristol? Something like this could easily make Bristol a culturally vibrant city and give future generations of Bristolites even greater opportunities than ever before.
