Sudbury School in the Manchester, NH Area
« on: May 06, 2006, 11:37:16 pm »

I have five families in the Manchester, NH area interested in working with me to start a Sudbury School in NH. 

It would be private and student directed.  It seems like a great education model to me, being a fan of unschooling. You can learn more about this model by check out http://www.sudval.org/

If you are interested in being involved in this project.

Please drop me an e-mail at info@allianceforthegifted.org

We most certainly need more democratic schools like sudbury in the US. Some excellent videos on this are found here:

"Our appropriately advanced and responsive curriculum means no more hearing “I’m bored” in school."

If it has a "curriculum" it means that the school doesn't trust children with their own education and lives. That only people can learn from "experts" I mean
teachers....and that children are unable to be teachers themselves, and or learn from other children. That play must be regulated otherwise children won't learn anything.

In order to completely break away one must leave homework and all curriculum's behind. IE - We know not what comes in the future, therefore it is impossible to know what our children will need to deal with that future.
