It’s Not Subury Valley, but…

Obviously, I think Sudbury schools are the coolest thing ever. But this “gradeless” approach to traditional schooling might be of interest to some…

“… 10 multiage levels, rather than 12 grades, and students might be in different levels depending on the subject. They’ll move up only as they demonstrate mastery of the material. “

Obviously, I think there should be a voucher system, so parents and kids can choose which kind of school they want to go to.
Performing Arts School, Science Magnet School, Trades School, Chinese-Language Immersion School, Sudbury Valley School, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.
