Brooklyn School Alternatives is a grassroots organization dedicated to supporting community-based learning, including homeschooling, free schools, and coops. Starting with the belief that learning is enjoyable and all children do it naturally, we seek to foster the ecosystem of learning resources for families choosing to opt out of the traditional educational system.
On May 9th and 10th, 2015, the first Brooklyn School Alternatives conference was held in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. Peter Gray was the headlining speaker. This was the first event sponsored by Brooklyn School Alternatives. More information can be found here.
