The Washington Post ran an interesting article (you may need to create a guest account to view content) about a school that “challenges the assumptions of every public and private school that measures success with test scores and prizes academic rigor. It is an educational anomaly in the super-competitive Washington area: The school day here is unscripted.”

The Fairhaven School, based on the Sudbury Valley School poses an interesting—alebit potentially problematic—alternative to traditional schooling. The filmaker Danny Mydlack recently made a documentary about the school, and the trailer can be viewed here. EdLab may want to consider this as one of the potential directions that schooling might take in the future.
