Noam’s school is called the democratic school; it has an education system where the children are part of planning and organisation of the daily studies. If a child decides not to go to class if his legs tell him to go running instead it is okey.. Homework, hmm only if you want to. So when the children need a week off from studies and classroom to build shacks it happens, a few weeks ago Noam’s class had "shanty week".
I really believe this is a great system if it is within certain borders, giving the Children responsibility to learn, makes them so motivated. They actually learn and have soo much fun!
