        Edited collection seeking essays about student experiences
in “free” or alternative schools. Despite many current debates about
education (Charter Schools, accountability, “No Child Left Behind,”
national standards, etc.), there has been little attention paid to
students who have experienced education without tests, grades, assigned
curriculum, or other forms of external pressure to learn. What does self-
directed learning look like? What kinds of environments are created in
these “free schools”? What kinds of projects/work take place in
alternative schools? How do alternative schools change the experience of
learning?
