Bhavya
Karnataka

At the core of Bhavya’s philosophy lies the conviction that given the freedom to be what we naturally are, we, and especially our children, become astoundingly creative and inventive. We can then use what we have created and learned, to lead more meaningful lives. We have created such an environment by choosing to free our children of the restrictions imposed by classrooms, timetables, competitions, examinations, grades, and a fixed curriculum/structure. This freedom enables each child to learn and grow at his own pace and, in the course of time, identify and develop his interests as well as his inherent talents, thus creating independent, self-directed learners for life.

One learns to look at the whole of man's endeavor, his search for beauty, his search for truth and a way of living that is not a contradiction between conclusion and action.It is a place where both teacher and the taught learn a way of life in which conflict ends.It is the concern of these schools to bring about a new generation of human beings who are free from self-centered action, to bring about a mind that has no conflict within itself and so end the struggle and conflict in the world about us.

Regular schools consider all children as machines with equal learning efficiency, who can learn a predetermined textual content within a stipulated period of time, in a predetermined way. If all children learn this way there is no problem. What is the future of the children who cannot learn this way? There is only a film (Tare Zameen Par), for dyslexic children, but no school. We find many mentally normal children who cannot adjust to the strict regimen of regular schools. We call them OUT OF SYSTEM children. So we are running a free child-centric school for such children We felt, we cannot create another earth and it was our duty to save this. So, we made Kalilyuva Mane completely an eco conscious school.

Children are encouraged to speak in Malayalam which, if you remember is our mother tongue. We have found that using Malayalam as the medium of instruction in lower classes leads to a significant increase in self-confidence and stimulates imagination. Once they have a proper grounding in their own language and culture, then learning English is no longer a dreaded chore. The children sing old Malayalam ‘Tharattu’ which were re-discovered and resurrected from cold storage. We also teach Carnatic Music. In the Nursery Class and Stds. I to IV, instruction is completely informal. Little pupils sit on the ground in groups, and a single class can tackle three different subjects simultaneously. Teachers move from one group to another encouraging self learning and experiment.

The people in this group believed that education is the process to actualize their vision of a society and an individual in this society. It is a Government Recognized non-aided school from K.G. to X with just 40 students in each class with no divisions. The school has consciously accepted the formal framework of State Board Examination (S.S.C.) and follows the curriculum recommended by the Government. However within this framework Aksharnandan has adopted innovative practices to make the curriculum relevant and linked to actual life. It strongly believes that real education is that which connects the children to the society.

We are not a model to be emulated. We believe that every one has their own destiny and path to travel and ‘unknown’ to unravel. We also do not claim that we know what to do. We know almost what we should not do. Schooling , controlling or conditioning are against the very foundation of living and that is what modern schools have been doing in the name of education. To educate is to draw out. Instead we have been filling in! We have come a long way and confused ourselves so badly that now to trace back and understand is a herculean task.In fact from human beings we have become human knowings! Knowing happens in the realm of unknown. Unknown is the condition for awe, humility, creativity, spontaneity, sensitivity and hence where living can happen. So we invite any one who wants explore afresh the whole question of being, learning, beauty, children etc. to be part of this journey.

Digantar
Rajasthan

Digantar’s search for alternatives in education began on a very small scale with a small school in 1978. The teachers of this school had trained under the late Shri David Horsburgh, who also guided the school in its initial years. The first ten years of that small school were a good grounding in understanding elementary education in general and classroom practices in particular. Digantar felt that it is the rural children who continued to be deprived of good education. We therefore began to focus on rural children. Digantar feels that the aim of education should be to develop rational autonomy, sensitivity, democratic and egalitarian values, dignity of labour and skills. We believe that the purpose of primary education is to make the child a self-motivated and independent learner.

Every child, without exception, has an innate and unquenchable thirst to understand the world in which he lives and to gain freedom and competence in it. Whatever truly adds to his understanding, his capacity for growth and pleasure, his powers, his sense of his own freedom, dignity and worth, may be said to be true education. In fact, learning is the human activity which least needs manipulation by others. Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is the result of unhampered participation in life in a meaningful setting. Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through self -learning and through connections to the community and the natural world.

Enabling children to explore whatever they wish can be both exhilarating and frightening for students and parents. For some it gives a chance to explore what they have been seeking for a long time; for others, there is a great challenge as they are called on to identify things they would like to explore and to pursue them with vigour and excellence – without the false motivation of reward and punishment. Such challenges are part of the learning opportunity because they give a chance to explore with students what they really wish to engage with – something they have often not considered before because they have been told what they will be taught..

Deepanam Auroville
Tamil Nadu
Shri Aurobindo

Learning is the key word and not any academic subject. To constantly arouse in our children the enthusiasm for knowledge and progress is the soul aim of our endeavor. Our School is based on Sri Aurobindo's and the Mother's Free-Progress education where the whole emphasis is on free growth and natural development. We are organizing a program for students from the age of 7 to14 years in which they learn in progressive stages to make full use of the Free Progress approach. We would prefer to keep the children in small groups or batches of about 5 to 8, for greater intensity.

Isha Home School
Tamil Nadu
Montessori

Our social structures have created extremely complicated survival processes. A child’s ability to look at life with utter freshness and involvement is slowly disappearing. It is the duty and responsibility of our educational systems to bring that back. Education can never be a profession – it must be a passion. In the process of education, it is very important to see that the child does not lose his joyfulness, his spontaneity, or his ability to be truthful without any fear of consequence. At the Home School, we are striving to create the necessary platform where education is not about loading the child’s mind with information, but about making the child’s mind capable of razor sharp perception, capable of knowing life in its full depth and dimension.

Marudam Farm School
Tamil Nadu

Our endeavor at Marudam Farm School is to explore, through the process of education, if one can meet the needs of the individual child and also bring "learning" as close as possible to "living". We hope to create a learning space that allows for the flowering of a deep sense of joy, sensitivity, order and intelligence as well as an innate sense of well-being in a child. In Marudam we see both teachers and students as learners sharing a learning space. As such, the teacher is seen more as a facilitator. Together, we take responsibility and care for the school environment.

Sholai School
Tamil Nadu

Sholai School is the brainchild of Brian Jenkins, a British social anthropologist. Jenkins first came to India in 1969, to study at Bodhgaya. Inspired by J. Krishnamurthy, the great thinker and teacher, Jenkins does not believe in the existing hierarchical system of schools. Students from different classes and age groups are clubbed together for learning opportunities. He believes that learning ceases in classrooms – practical knowledge is out there in the field.

The School KFI
Tamil Nadu
Jiddu Krishnamurti School

Students learn all regular subjects through school. The school sees that all subjects are essentially interrelated and that the division of knowledge into subjects serves reasons of practicality. In learning each student must begin from where he or she is and not conform to a standard expectation; and it is for the teacher to nurture this growth in learning. All learning at school attempts to build the student's understanding of the subject and its relation to life.

Prakriti
Uttar Pradesh

Children, being the pure beings of nature, are very much in touch with themselves – their inner being, their true self, their individual nature, their prakriti. Prakriti has been founded with the conviction that if children learn to understand themselves, be completely aware of their swabhav, discover their prakriti, the true meaning of life will unfold itself.

Vidyasharam
Uttar Pradesh

Vidyashram’s primary focus is to make learning relevant and meaningful, in line with their belief that teachers and books are not the only source of knowledge and there is a need to understand multiple perspectives. In practice, this translates into students making connections between theory and practice, really understanding and taking ownership of their learning, and in natural interdisciplinary connections in assignments. For instance, in one class 4th graders created individual surveys, conducted the survey in their own school and then presented the findings in the form of bar graphs, pie charts etc instead of simply ‘seeing’ how to present data in a textbook. In another example, the curriculum has fully integrated arts as a way to enhance learning and making it more fun, personal, and experiential.
