The Green School Bali

I have been fascinated with this school for several years now and felt that it applies to our GDPI course.  It relates to the inquiry based school videos that were assigned.  Have a look and see how a school can truly reach greatness through a holistic and inquiry based student driven curriculum.  The website is very large and has many components including a CNN documentary and visits from speakers like the secretary general to the United Nations as well as Jane Goodall.  (Plus, the founder is Canadian!)

I think this school aims at social reconstruction: critically analysing the state of society and trying to make it better.
