Max Greenberg - graduate of a Sudbury school comes to speak

On October 11th, Max Greenberg will share her educational journey and philosophy as the first speaker in our series on the educaitonal revolution. Maximanova Greenberg grew up in Chicago as the granddaughter of two of the founders of the Sudbury model of education, an alternative schooling system based on freedom and democracy. In the late nineties, her parents helped found a Sudbury school in Illinois, which she attended until it was forced to close. During eighth grade, she was unschooled and attended unschooling meetings and activities in Chicago, while independently pursuing her passions of dance and musical theater. After going to a public high school for four years, Max moved to Southern California to attend Scripps College, where she studies Gender and Women's Studies and Dance. Although her participation in education so far has been tutoring high school students in traditional subjects, she would like to be more involved with alternative education in the future. Having experienced traditional public schooling, alternative democratic schooling, unschooling, and elite private schooling, she has learned what each system has to offer and what each lacks, giving her a unique perspective on learning.

Max will talk about her personal experience as well as the importance of freedom and responsibility in today's society.

    It was so nice to meet all of you. I was incredibly inspired by Max's story and am eager to learn more about the Sudbury method and the Open School.

    This is a great chance to bring a friend or family member who doesn't "get" the idea of alternative education. They can meet (and be impressed by) a recent graduate who has experienced many forms of education and has a lot to share about them all.
