If you plan to start your new alternative in the next year or two and you want to avoid common pitfalls, enroll in the online School Starters Course before it fills up. It might be filled after the webinar. 

For example, this week weI had a meeting with two people from here on Long Island who have registered. One will start her alternative in Crete, Greece. The other will start a program for at-risk teenagers here. And we just got a registrations from people in Belgium and the Philippines. 

A scholarship application does not guarantee registration for the course. Enrollment will close when we reach 25 individuals or groups. If you register now at the regular tuition (which will probably go up significantly next year) your place in the course is guaranteed. Payment options are available at the registration site.

Schools and class sizes used to be smaller, dropout rates lower, in-school violence almost unheard of, and teachers weren't terrified of showing affection to their students, or of discussing moral values.
