Show Notes for Experimental Education #1

The first episode of Nerd Teachers’ Experimental Education series focused on Paul Robin and the Prévost Orphanage in Cempuis, discussing its history and much of the adjacent history that was taking place during its time. This episode discusses integral education, coeducation, and both laïcité and secular education. There are some lessons that we can learn from this historical experiment, including that it’s possible to make our education the way it should always have been: more interdisciplinary.
