- To help people discover the difference between education and schooling.
- To discover how education can lead to self-determined, self-disciplined and self-realizing members of society.
- To discover how learning can be made personally meaningful and socially responsible.
- To support individuals to address the problems of modern day living - critically, creatively, and compassionately.
CFL is an ongoing attempt to discover in theoretical and practical terms what quality education means as opposed to schooling, and to discover how to educate without schooling and how education can empower disadvantaged groups rather than domesticate them or make them unwitting collaborators in their own exploitation. CFL is an alternative, quality education centre that seeks to discover, impart and share its understanding of quality education with all interested.
