vote on a great many things, but we do not vote on everything. The important thing is to find the proper dividing line. Like any democracy, a Sudbury school values individual rights. As
such, the dividing line is clear. We vote on matters that affect the whole school. Rules. Budget. Staff. We don’t vote on matters that only affect individuals in their own sphere. What to do in a day.
Whether or not they’ll join another group’s activity. What to learn. And so on. So, yes, we vote. But it’s important to remember that the entire point of voting is to give the say to the people a decision affects. For communal decisions, that takes a vote. For individual action, it does not.
