Have you ever wondered if there was a way for your child to have another alternative from the main stream schools and still have a social environment and a plethora of learning opportunities without having to home educate? Tune into this interview with Mimsy Sadofsky who has her B.A. in English Literature and was one of the group that founded Sudbury Valley School in Framingham, Massachusetts in 1968. She has been deeply involved in the establishment of several dozen other schools throughout the world based on a similar educational philosophy. She has served in a wide variety of capacities at the school -- teaching algebra, bookkeeping, management, writing, English literature, French, cooking; helping produce plays; occupying administrative positions in admissions, as registrar, and bookkeeping; and overseeing the school's public relations program. She has spoken extensively in public forums about education, has written several articles, and is co-author of the books Legacy of Trust, Kingdom of Childhood, Starting a Sudbury School, and The Pursuit of Happiness, published by Sudbury Valley School Press. -- Becky Wheelock who has a Masters degree in Applied Mathamatics and has been teaching Math at local colleges and universities for nine years. She has taught in charter schools and has also worked with students with disabilities for a couple of years. She has three kids 7, 9, and 16 years old. She is a founder with the Sudbury School Start-Up in San Diego which is planning to open in 2011. So Becky has been dowsed in the school system for many years and has known that there has to be another way.
