10 Lessons from the Folk High School

10 Lessons from the Folk High School is a series of 11 short books, of which this first stands as the introduction. Each of the subsequent volumes examines one characteristic of the folk high school – its origin and its relevance for the past, for the future, for Denmark and for the world at large – and shows how it finds expression in folk high school practice today.

The books

All the books consist of one longer text, unfolding the theme, and then 4 praxis perspectives from practitioners, to get different angles on the theme and to get an insight. It is for both internally between folk high schools, but also other school settings, that wish to become inspired by the folk high school.
