Free School

Coordinating Free Schools and Franchising Free School Education System

  • The various educational models being implemented in countries around the world have all been formed as a result or each country’s own traditions, religious beliefs, customs, management styles and lifestyle. Regardless of the diversity of each country’s founding principles, however, each country’s underlying motivating force with regard to education is of course to provide quality education.

    It is, however, essential to identify a number of basic requirements that educational establishments must meet in order to be able to deliver universally-accepted quality standards of education. Firstly, consider some of the minimum requirements and the consequences of not meeting those requirements:

    • Schools that provide their students with less than 8 hours per week of physical exercise are unable to meet a child’s needs with regard to healthy physical development.
    • Schools that do not include a minimum of 4 hours of subjects relevant to individual students’ skills and talents in their curriculum will not promote happy students.
    • Teachers who do receive the equivalent of 5 percent of their monthly teaching hours of in-service training cannot be successful in their work (according to studies conducted by the Union of Education).
    • Language schools offering students courses of less than 8 hours of language input per week will have great difficulty in having them learn a second language.
    • In classrooms providing less than 2 square metres of space per student, the quality of education is bound to decline.

    Since Free Schools aim to consolidate universal values in education, the UN and numerous universities aim to promote and support the accreditation of the Free School Education Model. At in2schools, we also energetically support this aim to provide international quality accreditation of Free Schools
