Sudbury Valley School

The Sudbury Valley School was founded in 1968 in Framingham, Massachusetts. There are about 20 schools based on this model in the United States, United Kingdom, Denmark, Israel, and Australia. The model has two basic tenets: educational freedom and democratic governance.

Students at the school are free to choose how to spend their time and all decisions affecting the school community are made by majority vote of all those affected by the decision.
