Presented on the 2nd meeting of the multilateral school partnership Our TRESAURES in Portugal (Feb, 2011)
THE SCHOOL OF OUR DREAMS – What a great topic – The School of Our Dreams! As always when students are asked to give suggestions and ideas of how to improve schools, the list is endless. In accordance, in our Dream School there would be no examinations and no pressure of studies from parents and relatives. That way all students could develop their creative talents and engage them in a variety of extra-curricular activities which they would enjoy driven by their own curiosity and goals. This way we would learn to be responsible for our own education and future. In our Dream School every student would be a successful one due to an interactive and individual approach assuring thus personal development at our own pace, following our own interests. Our Dream School would be a democratic community where teachers and students would have an equal vote in building a community where members are free to do as they please so long as our actions do not cause any harm to others. However, the point of our Dream School is not avoiding our duties and obligations, but providing choices and opportunities.
What do you think would happen to the world if all young people were given the freedom to be creative, curious and collaborative learners?
