An Organic Education.
Adshead, Mary Lois Timbes
Journal for Living, n23 p51-53 2001
A former student reminisces about attending the Organic School in Fairhope, Alabama, in the 1950s. Founded in 1903, the school pioneered child-centered education; had multigraded classes; incorporated dance, pottery, weaving, and art into the curriculum; and was guided generally by the philosophy that education is not preparation for life, but that education is life.
