Hi Bernard,

Iederwijs started in the Netherlands without knowing of the sudbury schools.
After discovering it they noticed some minor differences, not in the
philosophy but in practice, for which they probably chose to keep the name
and build it out. (which they did and do extremely well, as you know).

Differences are:
- Sociocracy versus democracy, In consent or by majority
- Judicial system, it seems to be not that present, they solve problems
using more the dialog in the meetings.
- it's cheaper ;-) 300?uro per month for 1st child (10 or 12 months a
year?), sudbury is 5000 dollar a year.

I'm not sure whether all this information is accurate. I hope
Christel can talk a bit more about this.
