If you know me, you probably know I go on and on about the role young people play (or should play) in deciding their own lives. While many agree we need to empower our youth, very little are ready to create the space and the opportunity for young people to take ownership over different aspects of their own lives.
In many previous posts, I’ve talked about youth-led development.. which is the idea of young people becoming equal partners in development processes that will shape their communities and consequently their lives…
But today I want to bring a question about youth-led education… Have you thought about what could happen if students would design their own schools!?
Sounds weird!? Maybe you should have a look at this!
