How do you answer that in an email - hum
How to start a Sudbury Modeled school in a bunch of steps.
* Read all of the books out there
* Get the Startup kit from SVS
* Get on the demstart list
* Give up your day job
* Get likeminded people that truly understand the model to commit
to paying to send their kids to the school (the kids also need to be
likeminded and understand the model)
* Get some quality likeminded people that truly understand the
model (that can work together) to spend a week at SVS then commit to
working without pay
* Get a school site, use permit, business license, insurance, and
someone to guarantee that the lease and insurance will be paid
* Get an attorney
* Develop a good website
* Never give up
* Open the door, have a school meeting, and watch as everyone
develops the culture
* Did I say never give up?
It is a lot of hard work for many people, but worth it.

Hello Everyone!
I would like to know how one starts a Sudbury school? I live in the
Phoenix area and have not been able to find such a school here.
