A photo book with nearly 300 images of 6 unconventional schools.
What does it look like when school happens outside in a forest, at a soldering bench, or in a pig shed? When school leaders make a curriculum that follows the way a child thinks and grows, not the other way around? When class means building a roller coaster, robotics, or a biodiesel motorbike? What do we see when school truly engages kids, all the while really helping them develop the skills they need in life? This book is here to show you that none of the above is just a daydream: it's happening right now at schools around the world.
