Hi Mimsy,

Great to see outsiders enjoying demstart list. I wondered if you might now reconsider letting a few of our Baltimore Sudbury startup (who has purchased the kit) on the list. They are working hard every day, are very committed, will be extremely descrete and respectful, we promise, and they have paid their money. I am finding it awkward to be the only one in my small, committed startup allowed on the list.

Thanks.

Danny Mydlack

Greetings,

Can anyone tell me what became of the Sudbury startup that tried to
establish itself as a secular church? Was that a good way to go?

Thanks,

Yes we do have a summer camp. It is not part operated in the same
manner as a Sudbury school. There will be plenty of staff initiated
activities....

I thought people here might be interested in this:

"Nearly half of elementary school teachers surveyed about bullying
in schools, admitted to bullying students, according to a study in
the May issue of The International Journal of Social Psychiatry."

Jeff, That camp looks fabulous! All of our kids (and their parents)
were envious when they saw the description. Have a great time.

Have any of you heard of the upcoming film Accepted? It's a comedy and a
major motion picture --- with all the good and the bad that entails, but a
few quotes popped out at me from the trailer.

"All our lives we've been told what to learn. At South Harmon, the students
are the teachers."

"There are no tests, required reading, or any of that nonsense?"

"Whatever the students say they want to learn."

"For anyone who thinks higher education has hit an all time low..."

"You don't need fancy high-brow traditions or money to really learn. You
just need people with a desire to better themselves, and we've got that at
South Harmon."

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accepted:

*Accepted* is a comedy <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedy_film> motion
picture about a group of high school
seniors<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_school_senior>who, after
being rejected from all
colleges <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College#United_States_of_America> to
which they had applied, create the fictional South Harmon Institute of
Technology to fool their parents. However, they accidentally make the
school's fake web page functional and find hundreds of would-be applicants
showing up for orientation. They are forced to hire a former teacher (Lewis
Black) to be their dean and create a series of courses without anyone
finding out the truth. It will come out August 11th, 2006, and is from the
creators of the *American Pie
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Pie>*series.

Lewis Black is in it... :)

Cheers,
Andrey

Yeah, ACCEPTED is is a broad humor comedy for teens.

There is another film coming out soon called SCHOOLED
and it's a serious character study about a high school teacher
who pulls himself out of a life crisis when he spends some time
hanging around a Sudbury model school.

And I know all this because I wrote and directed the film. :-)

I was deeply influenced by the Sudbury Press books and
audio lectures (some I've listened to dozens of times),
and influenced by the work of A.S. Neill, Wilhelm Reich
and several other intense thinkers on personal growth.

The community at Cedarwood Sudbury School very graciously
let the lead actor and I hang out there for a day, and that experience
directly informed the JC meeting in the movie. An alumni from
Fairhaven named Ben Umstead was a HUGE part of our production
behind-the-scenes and on-screen for several scenes. There is a staff
member from the Summerhill-inspired Play Mountain Place in the film too.

I've been on this e-mail list for about 5 years, and I wanted to also
spend some time at "the" Sudbury Valley too although they turned me down(!)
because I was told they were sick of visitors. I felt equally frustrated
and delighted by their refusal! :-)

Right now we're finishing up the sound and music for the film and we're
at the very beginning of our promotion campaign. The film will begin
playing festivals in the late Winter of '06, or the Spring of '07.
And if the response is strong enough at the festivals, it will
also play art houses.

You can see pictures and more info at the IMDb:
www.imdb.com/title/tt0491138/

and you can watch the trailer at
our original website:
www.BrooksElms.com

or our MySpace page
www.myspace.com/BrooksElms

And if anybody on this list lives near LA, you're welcome to contact me
off-list and I'll invite you to one of our private sneak preview screenings.

Lastly, I want to thank the people on this list for committing to these values.
My greatest hope is that the film conveys the spirit of what it feels like
when children are genuinely respected and supported. And being a part
of this e-mail group for 5 years, has made a tremendous impact
on my perspective of what that's all about.

All the best,
Brooks Elms
writer-director
SCHOOLED
