Bay State Learning Cooperative is part of a movement that allows teens to learn when, what, how, and with whom they want, and they hope to open in Boston, MA, the fall of 2014. Right now, their founder, George Popham, is campaigning to raise $15,000 by December 10, 2013, on IncitED, a crowdfunding platform dedicated to education.
Here's what George says about his campaign and Bay State: "I have seen the terrible effects of the lack of alternatives up close and watched them unfold day after day, as young bright people have their enthusiasm and curiosity slowly smothered in ever more standardized school environments. This suffering is real and it is also a complete waste of time, resources and very real human potential.
Remind your friends of this. Remind them of their own experience, and tell them that we could have real alternatives, and that they could help out with this."
