Befreit lernen / Free to learn / Libre d’apprendre
The Optimal Context for Self-Directed Education Conditions present in hunter-gatherer bands and SVS, but absent in conventional schools:
1. The social expectation (and reality) that education is children’s responsibility.
2. Unlimited freedom to play, explore, and pursue own interests.
3. Opportunity to play with the tools of the culture.
4. Access to a variety of caring adults, who are helpers, not judges.
5. Free age mixing among children and adolescents.
6. Immersion in a stable, moral, caring community.
