I think I have finally got the message!

Here is the way I will in the future (unless you all advise me
otherwise) express my interpretation of the mission of the Sudbury
Valley School model:

It is the intention of Sudbury Valley Schools to apply the
protections of the U.S. Constitution to their students.

all about.
