Christos Korolis has been working as a teacher of Greek and English for about 15 years in the private sector. Since 2013 he has been the coordinator of the Solidarity School of Mesopotamia which is the largest school of its type ( 200 students, 45 volunteer teachers) functioning in a unique way since it is part of the Time Bank network and focuses on the equal participation of its members through open assemblies and activities. As a whole, our attempt aims to construct a different perspective about education and at the same time respond to the needs of the people who are victims of the so called economic crisis. Our movement has been very inspiring and since 2015 more solidarity schools around Greece are being created.
