Well, I'm certainly not writing off anyone as lazy. I, for my part, merely
wished to dispel the assumption that most or all Sudbury families have a
wonderful "cushion" of privilege, which is every bit as false as the
assumption you attribute to others here. I no more intend to elevate
creativity and sacrifice than I do to denigrate the inability/unwillingness
of those who can't/choose not to pursue this option for their children.
