Dear LO' ers,
I recently came aware of a special school which exists alrady from 1968
onward. It is the Sudbury Valley School. Please look at:
http://www.sudburynetwork.org/ and http://www.sudval.org/
I think that this is a true LO, where pupils learn in complete freedom in
a democratic environment. Some of the children will learn reading and
writing at an age of 6, others at an age of 10 or 11 (but then within a
couple of weeks, because of their motivation).
Are there members of this list who know more about these schools (there
are now a number of them, spread over other parts of the world), and could
you share your knowledge with us?
