A message from Korea:

We are currently organizing the time schedules and rooms for the workshops. Some of the topics that you've raised to be discussed are the following:

Establishing a school and some troubles that follow

Handling difficult children

The importance of play and a good model

The importance of a personal choice

The importance of creating a space for traditional
academic setting

The advantages and disadvantages of "free space"

The benefit of students having the power to hire/fire
staff members

Alternative Education's spoiled image & the problems of the
pseudo-alternative school

Introductions of various alternative/democratic schools

Current issues of a freshly starting democratic school

The status of democratic schools in an unsupportive/poor

These are the rough collection of the topics that you've
raised and we are more than happy to hear more about your
plans for workshops.
