This group started as a means to reach out to people who wanted to help to create Leeway. Now that the school is OPEN (!) the Meetup group exists to help keep people updated on our progress and to invite new people to learn about us.
Leeway Sudbury School (www.leewaysudburyschool.org) is located in Normal Heights, and is open to children ages 4 - 18. It is based on the Sudbury Valley School model. All those interested in learning more and participating in such a project is welcome! The Sudbury Valley School (www.sudval.org) provides an excellent model for education in the 21st century. It allows each child to become fully who they uniquely are in the context of a working democracy. The students are provided with the milieu to grow, explore and create without the constraints of many other educational systems. As a result they are self-reliant, self-motivated, self-confident, resilient and creative. They learn the benefits and discipline of democracy first-hand. These are just the type of leaders we need for our future world.
