I see an analogy to Viet Nam and the protestors calling returning vets baby killers. But the anti-war
vets had incredible power with the public when they showed up at protests and spoke from the knowledge
of people who had been there. I think that pro-Sudbury p.s. teachers can have a similar impact. If
only Sudbury insiders promote the Sudbury way, John and Jane Public will always be able to question
their motives.
