Would you choose going back to school or running in the woods all day?

Some parents choose to take their children out of mainstream education while others set up learning spaces for their kids. Young people attend democratic learning communities part-time and most determined educators gather evidence for their centre to become an Ofsted registered school. Democratic, self-directed learning communities are growing in numbers around the UK. They all have one thing in common – children are seen as active participants, capable to manage their lives and learning.

What every woman can do to have a great birth experience?

Can we think of #feminism as getting back control over our bodies and #birth? I spoke to Ceri Durham who wants women to take charge of their birth, ask questions to health professionals and know their #birthrights and choices. She has been running Tower Hamlets Positive Birth and Homebirth Support Group for 10 years; it’s a safe space where pregnant women and new mothers meet and discuss birth as a normal part of their lives, not as somethings awful or scary. Women pass knowledge to each other. One person at a time, Ceri is trying to bring change in the birth world.
