Education is always and everywhere about opening doors, opening minds, opening possibilities. Education is about opening your eyes and seeing for yourself the world as it really is in all its complexity, and then finding the tools and the strength to participate fully, even to change some of what you find.”

We had been dreaming about opening a free public school focused on social justice and environmental sustainability since 2000. We dreamed of a school where every student was known well, where differences were honored and celebrated, and where learning was deep, powerful and transformative. On August 23, 2005 our dream became a reality and Paulo Freire Freedom School opened its doors.
