The all school meeting

Filed under: ENDGAME — scrollman @ 2:08 pm

In the Alternative School where I work, we have all school meetings modeled after the Summerhill program in England.  I think all school meetings, or even all grade meetings if the school is big, can create the kind of learning community which might combat a school culture in which bullying is allowed to flourish; where kids feel isolated from their peers and teachers, and alienated from the community at large.  Let me know what you think.

  1. I saw a wonderful and intriguing video on Summerhill years ago in grad school. I do think these school meetings can be very important to building community among students and faculty. K
