About The Public School LA:
The Public School is an international network of free schools, started in Los Angeles in 2007. The project provides a framework for people to take or teach classes, workshops and events. Anyone can propose a class and anyone can participate. The Public School is non-accredited, and is not affiliated with any union, political party or the state public school system.
You can suggest a class for The Public School! Here is how it works: if you are knowledgeable about a subject and you would like to propose a talk, ongoing class, reading group, or event that you can lead, make a class "proposal" on the public school website or message us on our Facebook page to discuss an idea. You can also just make a proposal for a class that you would like to see happen, even if you can't lead it. If there is public interest in your proposal, one of our committee members will help facilitate the class, which means they will communicate with you, schedule it, show up to open the space in Chinatown, introduce people to the free school, collect donations, etc. (There are no mandatory fees for classes, and we do not compensate teachers, but we try to collect donations for rent.) You can visit the website for ideas: see what classes have happened in the past and what classes are occurring at other Public Schools in the Bay Area, New York, Berlin, etc. The Public School is as active and interesting as we make it, so get involved!
