    Forget academies, forget comps, forget grammars, forget free schools - what about a resurgence in open schools (Herbert Kohl) - the genuine free schools that rose up during the 1960s? Can you imagine that today? OFSTED would bust a gut!

    For those of us too young to have even heard of these establishments TF could you outline the idea?

    Could you set up a 'Free School' along those lines?

    You not been to Summerhill? They have a great CBBC mini-series on their website.

    Like many great American ideas, we did it first :)

    I would gladly do so Lanokia but since I am pre-moderated (cheers VU) - I can't be bothered with this site any more.
