Iâ€™m an MA student at the University of York studying Social Justice and Education and will be conducting interviews over the summer for my dissertation research looking into the experiences of trans/non-binary people in â€˜alternative educationâ€™ (e.g. homeschooling or Steiner/Montessori/democratic schools).
See Information & Consent Form for full info.
I would like to hear from young people (or their parents/teachers) who have experienced some form of alternative education. I want to interview people who have already finished, or are about to age out of 'compulsory education', the participants will have to be 18-25 years old.
To take part, download the file from Google Docs, fill in the consent form at the bottom and send it to the email address given in the form. If you or any young people have further questions about the research study or if there are any things you would need to know before passing it on then please do let me know.

A new school is opening up and seeks British trained education staff.
They aim hopefully - given current circumstances - to open in Tenerife (Canary Islands) in September 2020.
"We have set ourselves the challenge of creating a school that will not only allow children the time and space they need to develop, but which will also encourage different ways of thinking about education and childhood. Ultimately, our mission is to create a school that values caring relationships based on trust, and makes heard the voices of children in all aspects of their education."

2015-11-10This is the baseline test handed to parents for reception children - tested age 4-5 in reception class in England. Alienating, useless, likely inaccurate (can 4-5 years do it right?) and lacking in any decent information that one might call educational. It says too little and what it does say is said badly. A good idea? Read more about Crock of test
