Today's special guest is Zoe Readhead. Zoe is a staff member at the A.S. Neil Summerhill School in England. She will be talking with us today about this unusual and democratic school for children.  I can't wait !

A.S Neill's Summerhill School, a co-educational boarding school in Suffolk, England, is the original alternative 'free' school. Founded in 1921, it continues to be an influential model for progressive, democratic education around the world.

Summerhill School is one of the most famous schools in the world, and has influenced educational practice in many schools and universities. The democratic schools movement is now blossoming internationally, with many schools far and wide being based upon the philosophy of A. S. Neill or inspired by reading his books.

Nobody connected with children can claim
To know the true nature of childhood
If they have not heard about
A.S. Neill’s Summerhill School You may love the idea, or hate it
But if you have your own children,
Have taught children, or have ever been a child
One thing is for sure,
You will never view childhood or education in the same way again . . .

We hope you will join us for this very special show !
