  I've been away from the computer for a while, but want to respond to
this message. I think you misunderstand my position about democracy, so
I'll try to be clearer. I don't believe that "classrooms" in our
commonly held definition - a place where kids are required to be and
where they are evaluated according to a preformulated curriculum - are
in any way democratic. That doesn't mean that I think we should not
communicate with public school teachers who are interested in furthering
the democratic school movement. Obviously, since you published an
article in the Kappan, you must agree.
