Eduturism by Jerry Michalski John Holt

Giorgos Doulgerakis (Oct 19 2015)
I'm profesor in science, in a public lyceum in Greece. My experience shows me that in a five days trip my students learn deeper than a year in classroom. I believe the ideas of the free school and I try with my students every year to make them oyr reality. I will continue to do this, but I want to work in free school. Please help me
