‘New American Schoolhouse’



"Voices from the New American Schoolhouse explores life outside the usual educational box. Narrated exclusively by students, the film chronicles life and learning at the Fairhaven School in Upper Marlboro, MD which practices an undiluted form of freedom and democracy that turns mainstream education theory on its head. Filmmaker Danny Mydlack enjoyed unrestricted access over a two-year period to produce this candid and unblinking encounter with kid-powered learning."

Wholly fuck this is awesome quick thought on my school growing up I got robbed.

That is seriously great. I feel like, now that I'm graduating from college (and likely not to return, ever, save for some potential vocational stuff), only now do I feel that I'm getting myself ready for the chaos.

Heading back to school?
