    Founded by A.S. Neil in 1921, Summerhill is the oldest and longest running democratic school for kids in the world. Here is the description from their website:

    Founded in 1921, it continues to be an influential model for progressive, democratic education around the world.

    Summerhill is the oldest children's democracy in the world. It is probably the most famous alternative or 'free' school. The system that Summerhill employs is not only about education - it is also a different way of parenting which eliminates most of the friction and many of the problems experienced by modern families
