People who have other work,

Some notes on the libertarian pedagogy

The libertarian pedagogy expects
school pursuing a transformation in
personality of the students, a sense
libertarian and self-management (school
establishing, based on the participation of
groups, institutional mechanisms of
change, through assemblies,
councils, elections, meetings and

And Libertarian Education Matters

The materials are made available
student, but not required.
They are an instrument the more because
what really is important for
libertarian pedagogy is knowledge
resulting from experiences
by the group. The teaching method,
therefore gives up the group experience is
as self-management students
seek to find the most sa bases
tisfatórias of their own learning,
without any form of power.
It is put in the hands of the student

freedom to work or not, getting
educational interest in the dependency

Libertarian Education and the Role of
Professor and Group

The libertarian pedagogy considers since
early ineffectiveness and harmfulness
all methods based obligations
and threats. In this sense, the teacher
should put themselves at the service of the student
without imposing their own conceptions and ideas,
without making the student an "object" and
should be mixed for a group
common reflection.

All this freedom of choice has
a clear sense. If a student
decides not to participate, it does so because
not feel integrated, but the
group has responsibility for this
fact and have to put the question
under discussion.

Libertarian Education and Assessment

The criterion is the relevance of knowledge
its possible practical use. Therefore
does not make sense any attempt
Assessment of learning and further
less in terms of contents.
