minimum attendance requirements (Re: [Discuss-sudbury-model] In the news)

I suppose it is the difference between "democracy" and anarchy.
Even though democracy at SVS is much better than democracy in a national level.
Democracy at SVS is a direct democracy. Compare with representative "democracy" that we have in all nations all over the world.

I hope the rational for minimum attendance rules IS NOT enhancing consistency and school culture.
I would say it is more "(law and) order as foundations of discipline".

And . . . school's staff responsibility towards parents.

  hi all ~ as a hopeful sudbury starter, i have a question for which i would appreciate any responses. have any of the sudbury schools tried operating without the minimum attendance requirements? i understand the rational for minimum attendance rules is that it enhances consistency and school culture, but i still struggle with the idea of making the school compulsory in any way. thank you for your time and thoughts on this.
