Spring is on its way (and hopefully rain as well)! Although the Winter Free Skool quarter is still in progress, we in the Free Skool collective are busy preparing for Spring. So, we are now putting the call out for teachers for the upcoming quarter.

What skills do you have to share?
What types of classes would help grow more vibrant and self-reliant communities?

Free Skool Santa Cruz invites you to teach a class this Spring Quarter!

Spring is on its way (and hopefully rain as well)! Although the Winter Free Skool quarter is still in progress, we in the Free Skool collective are busy preparing for Spring. So, we are now putting the call out for teachers for the upcoming quarter.

***Note the new deadline for submissions, January 31st (a week earlier than usual).

As Free Skool elves begin to prepare for the Spring Calendar, which runs from March 1st-May 31st, we ask you to share what you know and love. Spread the word! The deadline to submit classes for winter quarter is Jan. 31st. Classes submitted after this date will not be calendared.

Free Skool is a decentralized, non-institutional project. In other words, you and I make it happen. Promote your class through word-of-mouth, fliering, community outreach, and the internet. Work with other Free Skoolers to post calendars and fliers. Help create a culture of greater caring, sharing, and balance with the earth without money and hierarchy.

Complete the online Free Skool class submission form available at http://santacruz.freeskool.org/content/teach-free-skool-santa-cruz by January 31st.

Please complete this form as soon as you can before the class registration deadline. if you want input on your class, need ideas for locations, or have questions, please submit your class early and email us at freeskoolsc [at] riseup.net.

Love,
Free Skool Santa Cruz

I am an effective, experienced Freedom of Information (FOI) requester and Gorilla Advocate:

http://www.facebook.com/GorillaAdvocacyInc

If I was still local, I would teach a class for Free Skool on submitting FOI requests to local, state and federal agencies. However HUD allowed The John Stewart Company to dislocate me illegally from the Mission Gardens Apartments in Santa Cruz for being a whistleblower about crime, fraud, housing program abuse and public corruption.

Yet I am still a whistleblower — I still advocate for Santa Cruz activists and disenfranchised groups and individuals using the tools of computer science, investigative journalism, FOI investigations and social media. I plan to launch Gorilla Advocacy, Inc. as a nonprofit in 3–5 months. I have been exposing a lot of (Santa Cruz) government corruption.

Perhaps I could persuade FOI experts I consult with to teach a Free Skool class on submitting FOI requests. Ask and I will contact them about this. In the meantime, join my Facebook group promoting open, transparent, accountable government:

Please contact me to line up FOI speakers for Free Skool.

Sincerely,
John E. Colby, Ph.D.
