I came across this website about Alternative Education, on Aanjhan’s blog. I was quite impressed, and joined the mailing list, which is very active. It comprises of mainly parents who are disgusted with schools, and are looking for alternative ways for educating their children.
Recently there was a very good thread (it’s still going on), about consumerism and the state of our world. The mailing list is a Yahoo group and unfortunately it doesn’t seem to support viewing as a thread. Anyway, here is the link- Be Silent, Consume, Die.
