It was (is?) a democratic school. It was a bit extreme for today’s standards – 100 years ago now – but it was inspirational. Of course it was written by the guy who ran the school so it would be all roses and sunshine. :) In the USA, there’s Sudbury Valley schools and other democratic schools. Still, there’s also some others that fit more into the unschooling model (funny to think of unschooling at a model but it tends to follow a pattern). They might not be a good answer for all but certainly good to have available for those that public school wasn’t made for. I was one of those but many kids thrive in public school. All depends.
