Abstract

In this article, the author traces revolutionary developments in an alternative school in Barrio Pueblo Nuevo, Mérida, in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, a school that caters for students between 4 and 14. He begins by recounting some fieldwork done at the school on his behalf by Edward Ellis in 2010. He goes on to discuss a video made at the school by the children in 2011. He concludes by updating Ellis’s fieldwork. This consists of an interview in 2012 with the school’s co-founder, Miguel Cortez, also carried out by Ellis.
