I want to start with a disclaimer.
I don’t usually post much here and I restrict most of my reading to Cafe Society so I don’t know if this is the appropriate forum for my question. If not I offer my apologies to the moderators and ask them to move my thread.
I have a project for school where I have to research a utopic community. I once read about a Summerville ( or Somerville or any other spelling ) school in England with a rather interesting theory of education in wich the students had an equal share of decision making as the adults.
I think it functioned throughout the 50’s and I remember that it was a failure, with the students leaving school completly unprepared for life.
I searched everywhere and was unable to find any site about it. My mother also remembers this school so I know it existed.
Can any Doper refer me to a link or give me any information concerning Summerville?
