What if students could design their own schools?

Would this kind of experiment actually work with a typical Mexican class? How do you think your students would react if you assigned it to them? Do you think there would be any resistance? How many students do you think that would actually work? and how would you convince the reluctant ones to at least try to do it? What are the advantages and disadvantages of letting students choose what they want to learn? How would you determine whether they all learned something from all the presentations or not? Discussions? What if they don’t want to take part of the discussions or the analysis and they stay quiet?

Honestly, I think it’s a good idea, I would try doing it with highschoolers but I doubt it could work with students of lower grades.
