Thanks for your help.
>From Freedom to Learn:
"Here, students of all ages determine what they will do, as well as when,
how, and where they will do it. This freedom is at the heart of the school;
it belongs to the students as their right, not to be violated"
So then it is seen that this freedom does allow for a great and deep and rich
education. But having this great educational outcome is not the intent of
offering freedom. It (the education) is collateral, a by product,
epi-phenomenal. This is all to say that if something more beneficial to
education came along that was not freedom, we (Sudbury Schools) would not
adopt it. This is the sense in which I mean Sudbury is beyond education. This
something beyond is the offering of freedom, a process, which appears best
highlighted in "The Art of Doing Nothing".
