See Replay of School Starters Webinar!

Only once a year we have a free school starters webinar. It was on Thursday, September 8th. You can see it here and even send in a new question which we'll respond to. 

How long have you been talking about starting a new educational alternative? We'd like to help you make that dream a reality!

The 11th AERO Online School Starter Course will begin on September 26th, 2016. That's only 2 weeks away! It will run until January. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. Up to five people can participate from each site without additional cost.

AERO has helped start more than 100 educational alternatives. You can see a partial list here. Since AERO's mission is the Education Revolution, we try to help people create as many learner-centered alternatives as we can. This course has been the most effective way we have discovered to help people go from their dream and vision to the reality of a new, vibrant educational alternative.

The course is not in real time except for an occasional optional live Skype or Google chat.  The course is on a dedicated website so you can access it from anywhere in the world at your own pace and schedule, responding to each section as we open it and responding to the posts of other students in the course. The site has videos, audio interviews, book excerpts, etc. 

The two instructors are Jerry Mintz, director of AERO, and Chris Mercogliano, author of How to Grow a School and long-time director of Albany Free School.  But the key to the course is the interaction between the students.

You can take the course for up to 3 graduate credits from Antioch University New England. The full course is now $1000 but will rise to $1200 shortly. It is now $1500 if you want graduate credit.

You can get more information about the course or sign up for it here. It has already started to fill up for this year! Inquire if you need payments or scholarship help.

If you have questions you can write to Jerryaero@aol.com
