Alliance for Self-Directed Education Membership & Forums are live!

It's taken a long time, but the Alliance for Self-Directed Education (ASDE), launched by Peter Gray and others, has launched membership on their site, which includes forums and the opportunity to connect with others who are interested in things like unschooling, Sudbury/democratic schools, and activism around creating a movement to promote learning that is based on learner choice and interests.

If you want to get involved in the movement, you can sign up at https://www.self-directed.org/membership/

They ask for a financial contribution of some sort from members, but it's possible to bypass this if you aren't in a position to contribute.

I'm particularly interested in bridging the gap between the movement and growing practice of self-directed education, and the reality that many young people are stuck in school and want out.

The Alliance is a new organization, but I think it has great promise in being part of the change many of us have wanted to see for a long time.

Also anyone who's interested, feel free to PM me, I'd like to get more discussion going about this in a few places with those who are interested.
