<< did you come across any others which offerred a democratic and/or self-
learning environment? >>
Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, fits the bill to a "T"! Not
entirely democratic, per se, but students create their own programs and can
choose to take classes at Hampshire, Smith, Mt. Hoyoke, U. Mass., or Amherst
College. My daughter is there after growing up in a combination of democratic
schools and progressive schools.
