I regret if you perceive that this discussion is in any way adversarial.
Yes, I have strongly held beliefs about education. Yet I am merely
attempting to express my disagreement with your position where it occurs,
to point out gaps or inconsistencies as I see them.

In other words, I won't get adversarial if you won't! :-) Let's not worry
too much about all that, and get on with the business of vigorous debate
sans personal attacks. To the extent that I have time, I am glad to bring
my Sudbury perspective to your opinions and questions.

they are really asking 'what place is mine? what community
do I belong to?'"
