Kinokuni Children's Village: A Child's View.
Potter, John
SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v14 n3 p16-26 Sum 1997
Two interviews with Akira, a 7-year-old student, describe life at a Japanese residential free school. Modeled after the Summerhill School, the main components are voluntary lessons, self-government through weekly schoolwide meetings and smaller dormitory meetings, and extensive experiential learning through project work. Akira likes Kinokuni better than regular school or staying home. (TD)
