Interesting… reading the corporate bylaws of the kids’ school — Sudbury Valley School. They are on the board of directors — all students and staff “teachers” are. And yesterday at their weekly meeting, the board (“School Meeting” — like “Town Meeting”) elected the new officers and clerks of the corporation thru next Sept. Some positions are commonly held by staff, but others, including the president of the corporation “School Meeting Chairperson”, the law clerk, and the elections clerk are usually students.
But also interesting… my kids aren’t yet interested and didn’t know about the election, which is fine too.
