I've been in Burlington for over a year now, and the more I get to know the place, the more shocked I am that there is not a thriving free school in the area. It seems a perfect match. You're thinking of moving so you can be close it one? Wow.
I'm a former teacher who left teaching because I felt like a hypocrit as I insisted that students follow the required curriculum. Yuck! I've fantisized about starting a free school myself, even thought about going to a conferance once on the topic. But the cold reality of no buildings, no money and no kids always kept me from taking the first step.
Maybe its time that Burlington residents started to talk about it. Maybe between all of the individuals sitting alone thinking it's too hard, we actually do have the resorces to put something together.
