LIBERATED LEARNING, LEARNING FOR LIBERATION
in Oakland, California
"We cannot keep using tools of oppression and expect to raise free people." - Akilah Richards
Liberated Kids is a Self-Directed Education (SDE) Community for kids between the ages of 5-14 in unceded Ohlone land, now commonly known as Oakland. We run a learning center where kids are recognized as the leaders of their own learning. We strive to be a safe and inclusive space where Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other POC voices and experiences are centered. We are rooted in community, as parents, family, and community members are guides and co-learners. We are endeavoring to decolonize childhood and allow our children to be their full selves.
Our goal is to be a transformative, trauma-informed,
inclusive and reflective self-directed learning space.
At Liberated Kids, we provide an environment that allows kids' curiosity, playfulness, and other natural ways of learning to flourish... where kids can feel liberated!
Kids explore, play, socialize and let their curiosities be their guides.
Kids cooperate, develop skills, deepen knowledge and learn about themselves.
Kids uncover their passions and unique gifts, and use those to contribute to the community.
Kids liberate themselves from coercive schooling, and practice freedom and responsibility.
