  TCS stands for "Taking Children Seriously"

  From the TCS website:

  TCS is an educational philosophy. Its most distinctive feature is the idea that it is possible and desirable to bring up children entirely without doing things to them against their will, or making them do things against their will, and that they are entitled to the same rights, respect and control over their lives as adults.

  So far, I agree with most of what I have read from the site. And so far, it seems to be harmonious with Sudbury philosophy. I can't say for sure, since I am fairly new to both, but they 'seem' harmonious to me.

  The website is located at:
