Towards co-operative working in alternative education

Fensham-Smith, Amber (2020). Towards co-operative working in alternative education. The Freedom to Learn Project, Phoenix Education Trust.



When I first sat down to write this article a few weeks ago, I was conscious of the ways in which my ‘voice’ might be situated amidst those of existing home educators and parents who have had no choice but to facilitate their children’s education at home. When a community resource emerges organically, as Learning in the Time of Corona has, there can sometimes be a disconnect between the intended purpose and the ways in which it might be populated in practice. I am acutely aware of the historical struggles that alternative educators have and continue to face in receiving mutual recognition and wider acceptance for the practice of enacting education differently, and sometimes without conventional schooling.
