Molly reading.If children are to learn to live responsibly, they must be given the opportunity to share the responsibilities of the community just as the adults do. To this end every child, not matter what his age, ability, or point of view, is a part of the school's governing and decision making process. The school's governing bodies are the School Meeting, the School Assembly, and the Judicial Committee. This organizational arrangement is based on one that has been in continuous use at the Summerhill School in England for over 80 years and at the Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts for over 40 years. If children are to learn to live responsibly, they must be given the opportunity to share the responsibilities of the community just as the adults do.
