The presence of the Independent Learning curriculum, which is currently still in the experimental stage, has similarities with the educational concept proposed by Paulo that education must feel freedom both from freedom of thought and to voice opinions. The independent learning curriculum gives freedom to students in their learning activities, students are free to express their opinions, conduct discussions both with students and with the teacher.
