It's funny how we keep showing up in the same places.

I agree, it's important to share so others get spared the pain of the traditional system and how it can be damaging to people and how much further along we could be if we knew there are alternatives.

Can we get a list of alternative/self-directed colleges and grad school programs?

Ones I am aware of are: Fielding, California Institute of Integral Studies, Antioch University, Saybrook
