Imagine an education system that values and gives respect to every student and where being supported to learn in the way that best suits each child is a right, not a privilege. You're imagining a democratic education.
The Phoenix Education Trust works toward this vision.
We aim to:
- be the hub for people interested in and practicing democratic education in the UK.
- provide a space for those who are honouring the child's right to be heard as an integral part of their happiness and wellbeing along with every day experience of democratic processes.
- be the point of call for; information, definitions, research and articles about democratic education.
- be a place to find support, discover who is doing what and where and facilitate the opportunity for those practicing democratic education to share and exchange experiences.
