Dear Bill,
What a beautiful and generous reply!
I really don't know enough about Sudbury to answer any of the questions at
the end. I can only judge these things from a distance. I think, in a
sense, I'm more "sold" on Neill because he was a beautiful and intelligent
writer. But Summerhill is pretty well known to be impossible to duplicate
and - essentially - it is Neill who can't be duplicated. I was strongly
attracted to Sudbury because of the idea that this model has survived the
test of time and is reproducible. But, really, one such school in Australia
is sufficient as a centre of influence. I'm testing what people have to say
about the model so I can assess it for my own purposes. There isn't enough
in it - from such great distances - to warrant a greater commitment on my
part. It sounds like a really great school, with really great teachers and
really great values. I'm the lost cause!
Anne

Dear Anne,

Yes, I mean the respect.

Yes, I mean by the post that I will take deep respect and profound regard
where ever I find it. Yes, I will take it in the thousands of traditional
school teachers, who have figured "it" out. The "it" is respect, profound
regard. I have found nothing better than this "it" to offer. And I have
found
nothing that is not this "it" that is of much use.

I first saw this "it" from a waiter, when my child was about two. Then I
saw
"it" again from a shoe salesperson. (I know, it is kind of sad that it is
rather rare). But what was so stunning was how useful "it" was to my child.
It is near sacred the use a child can make of respect.

I also saw it personally(40 years after the fact), when, 8 years deep in
therapy, I remembered the good nuns. The one who the children loved. The
one
who believed me when I said I was sick. Trust me, I will take deep respect
and profound regard where ever I find it.

But Sudbury Valley is 'sui generis' because they have intitutionalized
"it".
Are there any other institutions, any, where the central offering is a deep
respect and a profound regard? Are there any other institutions where this
is
even a part of what they are about? I am genuinely looking if anyone knows
of
such.

Deep Regard,
Bill Richardson
