Ted,

Yes. I do have an educational background. I have a masters in =
Educational
Psychology, and taught English for a year in Japan in 94/95. Am now =
going
for my PhD (piled higher & deeper!) in Adult Education, which goes along
with my career designing/writing career & job search materials. All =
that
education in education, yet I never bothered to get a teaching degree
because --although I love interacting with kids--the structured and
unmotivating way in which the school systems are set up always turned me
off. I only enjoy interacting with kids who want to learn and enjoy =
doing
so; otherwise, i'd just assume they be doing something else. In =
addition,
through my years of schooling, I don't recall having read about a school
system like Sudbury until last year, and it wasn't through school that I
learned about it.

I belong to a philosophical-sort-of list serve of people who enjoy the
teachings of Abraham (not the biblical one). These teachings are all =
about
attracting into your experience that which you think, creating your own =
life
through your power of attraction, and allowing others to create their =
own
life--in whatever way they desire. Anyway, last year Jerry & Esther =
Hicks
encounter this delightful school--Sudbury--which was perfectly in line =
with
all the teaching of Abraham, and they began to spread the word to all =
the
people who get their Abe newsletter (The Leading Edge), etc, and sent =
out
free copies of Free at Last to many on their mailing lists. So, then, =
the
people on the Abraham list-serve to which I belong began talking about =
it,
so finally I got myself a copy of Free at Last (from the Hicks), and =
read it
this summer. I was in heaven as I read the book; it just sounded too
delightful to be true. I decided then and there that when I have kids =
I'd
find/start a school like that one.

Robin,
I would like to discuss further off the list. I am an educator, =
counselor in a public high school with desires to do otherwise. I am at =
Clemson U., also on Ph. D. but ed. leadership. My dissertation relates =
to the democratic school in America. =20
