In Sweden, there is this organization called Öppna Förskolan (open kindergarten), which is usually free, or charge based on needs, and the main thing is that it is a space open everyday but children and families are not registered there, they come and go as they want. A normal kindergarten would be something more static, where the child is registered and expected to attend every day. Open kindergartens have also become a great place for helping new Swedish moms (and dads, but mostly moms) to meet new people and learn more about Sweden. They exist in local neighborhoods, in churches, and just about anywhere.
In a very different world, a group of parents are currently hacking Stockholm City's "school platform" that have cost 1 000 000 000 SEK over the course of 7 years, and the software that has come out is so shit. That's why the parents looked into the API (which is not open) and made their own app to display the information they need. They are called "The open school platform". The stockholm education administration have been fighting them, trying to turn off their access, change variable names in the API to mess up their app, but they just keep fighting through it. Last week the city sued them on security grounds, even though their app never logs or saves any information (as can be confirmed in the app store).
In order to plant seeds for radical change of education in Sweden, I am thinking about building on top of these two things, with something like "Öppna skolan Frihamnen" or something like that. A free harbor also sounds like a place where new ideas would meet
I love the idea of a school where you don't need to be registered, but come and go as you wish. It would be an "after-school" program, but you fuck with people's minds by calling it a school, and perhaps eventually people will be asking, why are not schools like this?
