    A democratic classroom is one thing - a democratic _school_ is

    As I understand it, a democratic classroom embodies some
    aspects of democracy; namely, I believe, that there is, on

    _exclusively_ by its members; namely, the students and staff.

    I know it's not what you had in mind, but I urge you to check out
    true and full democracy in schooling at the Sudbury Valley School
    in Framingham, Massachusetts (which is just one of many such
    schools located around the world, including in Australia). The URL
    is .
