Think Globally, Act Locally

The Alliance for Self-Directed Education is a global community that offers a platform for sharing ideas, events, questions, and answers...

Find Your Peeps
Local SDE groups are forming and making plans for their first meetings. If you’re an ASDE member, you can join (or start) a local group planning conversation here. As groups get started, we’ll list them in our upcoming Resource Directory that will help people find the closest groups.

Get on Facebook Live
Join us for our first Facebook Live event this Saturday, October 7, at 9am/Pacific (12pm/Eastern). ASDE member Aaron Eden will be discussing the formation of a local SDE group in Monterey, California, and his thoughts on the importance of local SDE groups. You can watch the event from our Facebook page and interact with Aaron in real time.

Share Your Event
The News & Announcements section of our member forums is the perfect place to share your SDE-related events and discover events that interest you. Upcoming events posted by members include one in New Jersey (near NYC) and one in Queensland, Australia.

  • Are Homeschoolers Hurting Society?“I feel that as SDE families, we are creating change by opting out. I feel that the system is beyond broken, and that we can better raise global citizens without it.”
  • Connecting with a Public School Board“I have come across two ‘democratic’ schools ... which are connected with their public school boards... Does anyone have experience with this?.”
