A documentary by Trisha De Cuyper
SCHOOL WTF! explores a unique philosophy on our modern school system.
The Brussels based ‘Het Leerhuis’ is a democratic school for self-initiated learning. Children are free to choose their activities all day long. They are responsible to decide what they want to learn – if they want to learn – out of their own interests, passion and motivation.
A film about the intention to re-think our school system and to suggest a different way of learning, but it also reflects the struggle of a few children with the paradoxes of freedom and democracy.
