What is Rock ED?

Rock Ed is

a volunteer group working to provide venues and events for alternative education.

a ten-year series of alternative education projects.

via music, the arts, poetry, sports, photography, fashion, graphic design, literature, new approaches to science, film, cultural studies, theatre, dance, and any other way except being in a classroom--the convenors of Rock Ed decided to Rock Society through Education and educate the youth through rock culture.

an alternative class where the substitute teachers are celebrities, musicians, poets, artists, entrepreneurs, writers, et al

hosts alternative social studies classes through actual school visits or holding the 'classes' in the events venue itself like bars, restaurants, soccer fields, art galleries, etc

a group of private citizens that coordinate joint projects with other NGOs that are addressing any of the 8 Millennium Development Goals

a group of private citizens that believe that poverty should end now

a group of private citizens that value education in its traditional form but creates alternative solutions for teacher training and student activities to enhance classroom learning--NOT replace it.
