Hi, Derek here from The Booroobin Sudbury School,
I think we're all indebted to those who have sought to work outside the
current paradigm to create a new educational paradigm. There were people
before Neil, and there have been and are many people who have worked with
Danny to grow the democracy of Sudbury. These discussions are a sign of its
openness to debate. Its important that anyone not especially involved in
the establishment of a SVM School and have gone through all the resulting
trials, tribulations and joys that there was not a formula for establishing
SVS when it started. The result of SVS today is people working together
with commitment and dedication, democratically, evolving the model as
necessary.
