We accept classes that are non-discriminatory: classes that do not  contain material that is racist, sexist, homophobic, ageist or discriminatory against any person or group of people based on that person or group's sexual, religious or cultural identity. We require that all classes be non-discriminatory because wish to create a safe environment for access to knowledge and skills for all people. In creating a project centered around empowerment and acceptance, we must recognize that certain classes that create safe spaces for empowerment and access to knowledge may be exclusive (such as classes open only to female identified people or queer identified people) because they create a space for empowerment that could not happen otherwise and do not do so at the expense of disempowering others.


We believe that people of and and all ages should be able to teach and attend classes ( this is a serious requirement). We would like to see more classes that are offered for children and more diversity in the ages of people teaching classes ( this is just kind of a guideline).


What would a Free Skool be if the classes weren't free? All classes should be free, and if an instructor accepts donations, no one should be turned away for lack of funds.


Classes should not be taught for the purpose of the instructor or the class location's financial gain.


We want more classes that teach skills or are academic in nature. Look at the wish list for ideas.
