An interest in Sudbury style schools happily grew out of my studies on play. I’m part of a group looking to start a Sudbury school in the Iowa City area. If you’re interested let me know!
The Sudbury Valley School began in Massachusetts in 1968. Its premise was simple: that people (including children!) are natural born learners. We are curious, we seek out knowledge, skills and understanding when confronted with a problem, a desire, or simlply something we find interesting. The original Sudbury Valley School is still going today, as well as many other schools built on the same model. We would like to open a Sudbury Valley style school in the Iowa City area. If you are interested, please let us know! We are talking and exploring possibilities and spreading the word to any who might want to lend a hand, send their child to such a school, or play a part in its development. If you’re interested let us know!
