Summerhill Wins in Court!
Readhead, Zoe; Mintz, Jerry
Education Revolution, n29 p3-7 Spr 2000
An interview with Summerhill School's head describes how the independent boarding school challenged the British government's demands that it give compulsory lessons. A settlement required the school's philosophy to govern the government's approach to the school; recognized the pupils' voice in evaluations of the school; and acknowledged that learning takes place constantly, not just in class.
