My Sudbury Library
updated April 23, 2016

My oldest daughter attended the Fairhaven School, one of the few Sudbury schools in the United States, for her first year of middle school. Unfortunately, we moved out of Maryland and she was unable to continue. I absolutely loved the model, however... particularly for the adolescent years.

The American Journal of Play, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary publication of The Strong, occasionally carries articles about the Sudbury / democratic school model.

Peter Gray (Boston College) and Jay Feldman (Center for the Study of Culture and Education) wrote my favorite: Playing in the Zone of Proximal Development: Qualities of Self- Directed Age Mixing between Adolescents and Young Children at a Democratic School (PDF).
