A different education for those who want to make a difference


Urgent request

Windsor House School, the only democratic school in Metro Vancouver, will have to move by the end of June 2014, and still have nowhere to go. If the school is shut down, 150 children and those on the waiting list will not have the education they want, that is, education without coercion. The school needs from 15,000 to 20,000 square feet of inside space. Please contact the school or us if you know of such space in Metro Vancouver at affordable rent. Many thanks from the students, parents, teachers, volunteers, and friends of the Windsor House community.

These videos explain our concepts well:

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” – Carl Sagan, astronomer

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” – Derek Bok, lawyer and educator

“Experience without theory is blind, but theory without experience is mere intellectual play.” – Immanuel Kant

“Nothing differentiates people as much as their respective attitudes to the circumstances in which they live. Those who opt to make history and change the course of events themselves have an advantage over those who decide to wait passively for the results of the change.” – Father José María Arizmendiarrieta Madariaga, a Catholic priest and founder of the Mondragón cooperative movement in the Basque Country.
