holistic education school is a taiwanese school upholding democracy as guiding principle, in which students can make decisions on important living affairs. it also maintains the free school environment that helps students to build up the capacity and courage to pursue freedom.
rtc gaia school in hong kong learns from nature, and respects the uniqueness and characteristics of each student. it stresses the subjectivity of students in study, while teachers become the facilitators of it.
when talking about alternative education, some may ask, “will this protective, relatively free and repression-free learning environment, make students difficult to confront the repressive and realistic society?”
however, reviewing our past learning experience which is filled with tons of homework, quizzes, examinations and rules, what have we learnt?
if you are also not satisfied with the present education, let’s join our activity to know more about how Holistic educates (or learns from) students, listen to the sharing from RTC Gaia School, and engage in the dialogue on ideal education with them!
