Dr Joanna Sweetland

In 2017, Jo and her husband Jez withdrew their three children from mainstream education for a year of home education. During this time, their children rediscovered their creativity, and became energized and curious. There was no going back!
Jo is passionate about community. She loves the richness of a shared life and exploring the messiness it can bring through the tears and laughter. It was from this heart for community that Streams Education was born in collaboration with Matt, Sian, and Juliet.
Although enjoying home education, Jo understands that it is not the right choice for everyone. The bigger challenge of systemic change in education is one she is actively exploring. Her work is now focused on opening the first Streams Learning Hub in Bristol, a flexible co-working space for teenagers that offers and develops innovative learning experiences.
In her free time, Jo enjoys spending time with family and friends, and taking every opportunity to travel and experience different cultures.
