Our two boys, born in Australia, fought to lose their accents to fit in
with other kids. They only began to see their own worth when we took
them out of public school.
Family and cultural values are very important to many of these
families. Show people that Sudbury type schools preserve these values,
and you may have some takers.
I saw an exhibition in Australia at Adelaide's Immigration museum. Kids
from various countries had exhibits about their lives, including their
most precious possessions. Numbered among these were religious books,
family heirlooms, ancient swords, and for the Australian-born boy, a
comic book(!). We could make everyone's most precious possession a
comic book if we send them all to public schools!
