Ed Talks was a rousing success!

3 Dec

First, thank you to everyone who attended and spoke. This was our second Ed Talks event and the first one organized, funded, and promoted entirely by Free Skool itself. Also thank you to Wardenclyffe for hosting the event.

We covered a lot of ground and heard from a lot of different speakers and backgrounds – from an English professor who moonlights as a certified naturalist, to a promoter of worker cooperatives, to a revolutionary photographer, to publishers of a feminist zine, and so much in between – and through all the different discussions, questions, and presentations a common theme emerged: community versus isolation.

Free Skool doesn’t normally wax poetic but Ed Talks really helped us underscore our purpose and mission: to remove divisions between people, to democratize education, and to help the community realize its potential. Education is community!
