What is the best way to learn together? The close community of a folk high school is always singled out as something unique – not only for the student’s social life but also for their ability to learn.
The folk high school’s learning space generates a sense of security and creates a special potential for social learning and identity development. So writes Johan Lövgren in his reinterpretation of folk high school pedagogical practice, while four narratives provide examples from life at a folk high school.
