In 1965 a group of teachers from Reus joined together to create a new school. The project diverged dangerously from the Catholic Church’s model supported by Franco’s dictatorship. Mowgli’s School was a great pedagogical, political and cultural challenge.
The tenacity and passion of the teachers plus the confidence of the parents who supported the project economically and ideologically and the complicity of a part of the community made it possible for those students to be educated in freedom. Their personal adventure explains why this kind of initiative became a trend in Catalonia during the 60’s and how it turned into a reference model in the 80’s.
