I have been inspired by A.S. Neill and Summerhill for years. I have worked in public schools in the U.S. as a teacher, and administrator. In the latter years of my career I tried to give younger people as much freedom as possible. I ran a democratic program in the public schools at the end of my career and wrote a book about how schools can change and eliminate tired procedures and systems that impede younger people's freedom and learning. My book is titled "Get Out of the Way and Let Kids Learn, How We Can Transform Schools and Reintroduce Natural Learning"
