The pedagogy of the folk high school is nothing if not a human pedagogy, whose aim is the genesis and maintenance of humankind. Folk high school pedagogy is all about challenging individuals to become themselves as self-determining and responsible beings.

So writes Leo Komischke-Konnerup in this, the first volume of  10 Lessons from the Folk High School , and four stories from the everyday life of folk high schools reveal how this lesson is realised in folk high school practice.
