Sociocracy: Democratic decisions for the common good

There are different ways how decisions can be made in democratic societies. Often, like in traditional elections, decisions are reached via a majority vote. While this allows citizens to participate, it also produces winners and losers. Therefore, the sociocratic approach aims to rather build a consensus among all parties involved. The basic idea is to find a temporary solution that works for everybody – until a better solution can be found. This allows schools to be more agile and inclusive while at the same time encouraging teachers and students to take over responsibilities that will allow them to positively shape their own community.
