Scott David Gray is a staff member at SVS, so he would be more able to
answer that than I would. I was a staff member at The Highland School, a
similar school, but not one modeled after SVS.

 

From what Scott David answered earlier, I would say we are pretty close on
this one, though.

Alan, is this policy at Sudbury schools (re Jennifer's question below)??

For me, the same considerations apply as in the "encouragement" question. I
want staff members who are fully active human beings. So, it is entirely
possible that I will say to a kid (or anyone else), "I am going to be
working in the darkroom at X time. Anyone who wants to join me is welcome to
do so."

 

A big question to ask oneself is, "Am I offering this activity because I
think it will be good for them or because I enjoy doing it?" If the answer
is the former, nix the activity!
