In East German Lausitz, an economically disadvantaged region, a small group of young parents develops the concept for an alternative elementary school: a school that focusses on the needs of children, where individual potential is being fostered, without subjects, without grades. The children are free to choose what they want to learn and are involved in decision-making processes.
“Tomorrow Starts Today” shows an alternative definition of what a school can be and takes us along on the journey of the school founders. Applying for a permit that is destined to be declined, they are passionate to make their vision become reality.
