weird stuff to come across: printout of my college entrance personal statement (1st page) While I remember John Holt being one of the reasons I sought a full scholarship to a small private school at 14 in 8th grade, it was in fact an English teacher who recommended Summerhill to me when I was 16 and already at that school. I’m glad to see my values haven’t changed in all this time. It’s a relief because so many people (“age peers” and older people) say things like, “Yeah, you start out liberal when you’re young but you get conservative when you get older.” They were wrong.
