<< I guess that what I'm really probing is this:
My son and I are planning on starting a new school here in Sydney.
The "democratic" processes so far consist of consensus decision-making often

The democratic process in a Sud school is one person, one vote, and the
majority rules. Concensus is not really democratic. Personally, I prefer
concensus to J.C.. Although, J.C. has it merits, if needed. Concensus
invites the relationship between people, whereas, J.C. is primarily used for
settling disputes and punishment.
