The main difference of the educational system we offer is awakening and development in a man first of all his spiritual, creative and emotional potential.
The system appeals to a man's soul, to the development of inner self-knowledge, understanding of the world and all phenomena existing in it rather than to a man's mind, memory and skills of simple remembering the facts (the latter is common in the traditional school education).
Our system is created and is being realized not as a contradiction to the existing systems of education, but as an essential additionto them.
The system is aimed at:
- self-knowledge and understanding of the world
- development of individual potential, creative and co-authorship sources in a man
- all-round development of a man of integrity
- ability of self-realization as well as the fulfillment of life goals; priority of unselfishness and non-personal values
- acceptance and following the values that are common to all mankind
- real spiritual realization
During the work of Children's Very Public Corporation we have worked out the optimum methods of achievement these goals. The most important of them are:
free of charge way of conducting the lessons;
absence of formal educational programs (in the process of life-game-co-authorship the live, non-fixed, individual-collective "program" appears);
principle of equal in rights co-authorship of children and adults;
non-following the authorities;
people conducting the lessons must be out of any religious, criminal and political structures.
For the last 8 years we've worked out and partially realized
several main directions:
