Summerhill alumni: ‘What we learnt at the school for scandal’

Not many folk these days remember,but before Bob Hughes wrote his bookie ‘notes to an Adventure playground worker’ (I think) in 1979, the only guidance we had was:

Axline’s ‘Dibs in search of self’

John Holt’s ‘how Children Learn’ ‘How Children Fail’ etcetera

and Summerhill!

I was a member of the long-defunct A.S. Neill Trust and saw Neill as an inspiration for my playwork.
