Alternative Education

This program is still under development.

troop1320picIThe mission of the Alternative Education Program is to offer parents who desire a legal way to govern the education of their children support and resources to do so.

Alternative education is a blanket term encompassing many different pedagogical approaches differing from that of the mainstream pedagogy employed in a culture. Such alternative learning environments may be found within state, charter, and independent schools as well as home-based learning environments. Many, but not all educational alternatives emphasize small class sizes, close relationships between students and teachers and a sense of community.

Green Fire EcoMinistry supports parental right to determine what kind of education their child receives and views compulsory education laws in the same light that we view Native American forced assimilation programs.   This program is set up to provide information resources to a multitude of established alternative school programs and curriculum that are currently available through links on this program page.
