Zoë Neill Readhead – Principal of Summerhill School, UK. The Principal at the A.S. Neill Summerhill School in England talks with us today about this unusual and democratic school for children. A.S Neill’s Summerhill School is a co-educational boarding school in Suffolk, England, and is the original alternative ‘free’ school. Founded in 1921, it continues to be an influential model for progressive, democratic education around the world.
Summerhill School is one of the most famous schools in the world, and has influenced educational practice in many schools and universities. The democratic schools movement is now blossoming internationally, with many schools far and wide being based upon the philosophy of A. S. Neill or inspired by reading his books.
His daughter Zoë Readhead, the current Principal said "Nobody connected with children can claim to know the true nature of childhood if they have not heard about A.S. Neill’s Summerhill School. You may love the idea, or hate it but if you have your own children, have taught children, or have ever been a child one thing is for sure, you will never view childhood or education in the same way again."
