Consent Decision-making with Children

In this video children make a collective decision about a candyfloss machine in the School Circle at De Vallei, a democratic school in the Netherlands. In this school meeting, the students are using sociocracy to make their decision about whether or not to buy a candyfloss machine for the event they are organising.

Sociocratic Schools – Annewiek Reijmer

In this video, Annewiek Reijmer, former general manager of The Sociocracy Group (TSG), explains how a sociocratic circle organization could be applied to a school. The scheme shown in the video is one example among many possibilities of how a school could be organized into circles, in this case with 4 levels: mentoring circle, group circle, school circle and top circle.

How a School Circles works

Else, a student from DOE (Democratic Education Eindhoven), gives an insight into how students and staff make decisions in her school on the School Circle. They use Sociocracy, a decision-making process based on the consent of everyone in the circle. To make a decision the circle follows 3 rounds: Picture Forming, Opinions and Consent Round.
