The Public School
Telic Arts Exchange
The Public School is an independent and alternative school with no curriculum which does not give any degrees. Throughout its website, users you can find classes happening in various locations all over the world for free. Related to the school is the online library aaaaarg.org (now aaaaarg.fail) which offers texts, outside institutional frameworks for studying despite the restrictions of copyright. Boards and thematic lists of texts are organised by users.

It is a framework that supports autodidactic activities, operating under the assumption that ‘everything is in everything’.
People have the opportunity to ask for classes and the school finds a teacher, offering the class to those who signed up.
