When Jeff Collins couldn’t find a school suitable for his daughter he discovered The Sudbury School Model. He was so impressed he started his own school in Woodstock NY! Jeff takes us through the values and philosophies of The Democractic Sudbury School model, where each student has a voice and decision of how the school runs and how to spend their days. The school has no curriculum, no compulsory classes, no tests and no homework. Instead they promote Trust, Choice, Responsibility and Accomplishment. The model focuses on internal motivation with no coercion to get students inspired and interested in life and the love of learning. Jeff is passionate about getting The Sudbury School Model into the mainstream as we approach this new age of how learning can look. Thank you so much for joining us today!

Erica Goldson reflects on her unique journey, famously known as the Valedictorian who spoke out about the one size fits all outdated school model. Many of us looking back now may feel school was far from ideal often feeling like a task to complete, where our passions and creativity were shunned. Many of us may have missed out on having that crucial time as a forming young mind with the space and encouragement to nurture those special sparks which make our heart sing. Can we even test for living a happy, meaningful and fulfilled life? Or those much needed qualities in today’s world of co-operation, critical thinking, compassion and empathy?
