I ran across this interview of a little boy by his mother, who asks him various questions about his experiences at his new school. This is not your typical school. It is the Sudbury Valley School in Massachussets, where children decide for themselves what to do all day.

Having taught Kindergarten myself, I can attest to the importance of social interaction and hands-on activities at this age. He gets plenty of both.

What do you think?
