But come to a Sudbury school, where the paradigm has allowed children their own initiative from the start. Suddenly, you have a culture of solutions.
School Meeting is filled with ideas how to better the school, and the debates often flow outside the meeting. Students look for new ways to learn what they want. Interpersonal conflicts are solved without resort to grown-ups. It really is a thing to behold.
If you want a kid who whines about their problems but does nothing to solve them, send them to a public school. If you want your kid to grow in a culture of solutions, send them to a Sudbury school.
