Is going to school the only possibility?

In Germany there still exists compulsory education. However, it doesn¹t
exist in countries like Austria or France.

Just a few months ago, we visited our friend, Daniela *Ela* Gumpoltsberger in Upper Austria and we were totally surprised by her positive UNSCHOOLING-project! We were very happy to see the space and the courses she offers for the children that they can learn freely and happily. Therefore we decided to make a short film about her project. It is a project not only for children, but also for adults, to learn voluntarily, with joy and freedom.

Wish you the best!

Good to see this type of approach is multipying in many countries. My children attend a similar school in Argentina, a rural school, with a group of 15 children. We are now planning on moving to Germany for a few years and are concerned about the type of choices we´ll have there.

All the best,
