School sans Rules from 1962

YT Direktschool, via Dangerous Minds

Schöner Clip über die antiauthoritäre Burgess Hill School bei London von 1962. Die Kids tun mir tatsächlich ziemlich leid, weil sie nichts haben, wogegen sie wirklich rebellieren könnten und wahrscheinlich wurden aus all denen Bürokraten und Betriebswirtschaftler. Arme Schweine. Aus einem alten Artikel vom Time Magazine:

At Burgess Hill School near London, two seven-year-olds strolled into the recreation room. "Got a match?" asked one. "Sure," said the other. The boys were puffing away, when suddenly the headmaster appeared. "Hi, Jimmy," they said with friendly smiles. Waving back with kind disinterest, James East, M.A. (Cantab.), explained to a visitor: "Kids always smoke, and I'd rather know about it than have it done in secret."

Burgess Hill is the tight little isle's loosest "freedom" (progressive) school. Shunning all rules, it allows boys and girls aged 7 to 17 to smoke, swear, pet, go barefoot, stay dirty.
