The Public School Los Angeles is a space for radical communal self-education.

How do I propose a class? Can anyone propose a class?

Yes! Anyone can propose a class. Simply post a proposal describing the class you’d like to host, teach, or see started. If there is enough interest in it and a committee member can host it, we will begin the scheduling process.

What types of classes do you host?

We tend to focus on reading groups, often around philosophical, political, and artistic concerns. However, there is no limit to what you can propose. In the past we have hosted walking tours of radical Los Angeles, learned about indigenous plants, had “fucked up drawing classes” and more. If you want to see it, just propose it!

Do classes cost money? Do teachers get paid? Can I get any credit for this?

All classes are free. Teachers may not accept payment. There are no credits, it is self-education, outside of all public and private educational structures. You may however make donations to the Public School to help offset upkeep costs.

What if I have another question or want to talk about a class to the committee directly?

Just email The Public School and we’ll get back to you promptly.


The Public School is located at 951 Chung King Rd., Los Angeles, California 90012
