Brooklyn Free School on This American Life

Brooklyn Free School (BFS) is proud to announce that it will be featured as part of the radio broadcast This American Life. The program will air the weekend of, January 15-16, 2011, as part of their series titled “Kid Politics” – stories where kids are being handed adult sized decisions of all kinds.

The show will air in New York at WNYC 820 AM on Saturday, January 15 at noon, WNYC 93.9 FM on Saturday, January 15 at 9:00 p.m. and Sunday, January 16 at 7 p.m. For other ways to listen outside New York City and in the future, visit: www.thisamericanlife.org/listen

This American Life is a weekly public radio show broadcast on more than 500 stations to about 1.7 million listeners. It is produced by Chicago Public Media, distributed by Public Radio International, and has won all of the major broadcasting awards. It is also often the most popular podcast in the country, with more than a half million people downloading each week.

BFS is a grassroots movement formed in the early fall of 2003, offering a true educational alternative to the traditional orthodoxy of education now dominant in most public and private schools in New York City. The community is composed entirely of parents, students, educators and others who believe that freedom and democracy are not just textbook concepts, but a way of living and learning – for our children as well as ourselves. BFS is dedicated to the belief that all students must be free to develop naturally as human beings in a non-coercive educational environment where they are empowered to make decisions affecting their everyday lives and that of their community.

In January 2010, the school acquired its own building at 372 Clinton Avenue in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. This 5-story brownstone has helped the school grow in its scope and focus. For more information on this groundbreaking educational option, you can call the school’s director, Alan Berger at 718-499-2707 or visit their website at: www.brooklynfreeschool.org
