The Village School: Where Kids Can Laugh and Play Like Kids

As a blogger for IDEA: The Institute for Democratic Education in America, I’ve been able to meet some amazing people doing some extraordinary things. One such person is Cian Sawyer, who is making waves by birthing an actual Free School known as The Village School. I’ve been following along as she chronicles her journey at Birth of a School, and I never cease to be amazed by this homeschooling mom and the innovative, revolutionary actions she is taking toward education in her community.
