To be specific, this is a topic that has no bearing on the
Sudbury Model itself. It is a purely internal affair. How
the Assembly of a given Sudbury School sets its tuition
structure, chooses to purchase its birdseed, or gets the
building cleaned, is beyond the scope of this mailing list.
I can see a person _from_ a Sudbury school mentioning a
particular policy of their school by way of example -- but I
can't see it really being up for public debate in this
forum.

It strikes me as a little odd to discuss such a question in
this forum; sort of like debating how one particular UK
citizen should go about calculating his/her taxes, on a
mailing list for the discussion of general
policies/philosophies of taxation.
