Go to school
Just show up at the location listed at the time listed! Please note that some classes require RSVPs due to space restriction or materials that the teacher provides. You can RSVP by clicking on the class description from the calendar. Contact the teacher if you have any questions or if you want to be put on an email list for that class. You can go to as many classes as you like as often as you like. You are in charge of your own education. You can also join Boulder Free School’s email list here.
Suggest a class
Have something you’re interested in learning about? Don’t see the subject on the list of classes or workshops? You can send us an email to let us know you’d like to form a new class. Let us know how many people you know who would be interested in taking the class and we’ll help you find a teacher. You can also look at our teacher profiles to see if there is already a teacher who might be able to teach about the subject. Please think about a potential location for the class you’re suggesting. Your email should somewhat follow this flexible format:
Hello, my name is Marius Pontmercy. I would really like to learn about how to lead a revolution. I have five friends (copied on this email) interested in this class as well. I noticed Christina Gosnell is teaching a class about community organizing so I sent her an email to see if she could teach for an extra half hour after each class to bring the focus in but her experience is in nonviolent activism. While I would love to use her knowledge for my purpose, I live in a military state and I don’t believe I have a voice without rallying the troops.* Do you know anyone who has experience leading a revolution? I think that Atlas Purveyors would be a great place to learn about revolting because they are world-focused, but I haven’t talked to them yet because I want to wait until we can find a teacher. Can you please list “leading a revolution” on the waitlist and mention it in your newsletter? You can list my information so I can connect with potential teachers to form a class description based on their knowledge and my desired knowledge.
*Please note that we do not in any way endorse violence, and we would appreciate if all classes incorporate nonviolence. Les Mis is cool though and the example makes sense, other than the fact that Marius wants to blow the French army to pieces.
