Now that you've read the excerpt from A.S. Neill's book about Summerhill School, what is your reaction? Do you think that kind of school could truly be effective? Would you like to attend a school like that? Why do you think there are so few schools organized in the same way?

Please respond thoughtfully to any or all of the questions above, or write about any other theme, issue, or question that the reading has raised in your mind. Feel free to comment on or respond to your classmates' posts as well.
