    • Alexander Sutherland Neill
      October 17, 1883 - September 23, 1973
      Parents were both school teachers
      Served as headmaster and taught algebra, geometry and metalworking
    • Alexander Sutherland Neill
      Wrote over 20 works including:
      The Problem Child (1926)
      That Dreadful School (1937)
      The Free Child (1953)
      Neil! Neil! Orange Peel! (1972)
      Summerhill: a Radical Approach to Childhood (1960)
      U.S. number one non-fictional best seller
    • Alexander Sutherland Neill
      Philosophy
      Happiness of the child is important in the child’s development and happiness comes from a sense of personal freedom
      Externally imposed discipline prevents internal self-discipline from developing
      “Freedom, not license”
    • Alexander Sutherland Neill
      “The function of the child is to live his own life – not the life that his anxious parents think he should live, nor a life according to the purpose of the educator who thinks he knows best”
      Neill developed the Summerhill School to implement his ideas about school being for the children
    • Summerhill School
      Established in 1921
      Presently located in Leiston, Sutfolk, England
      Students are allowed to choose the classes they attend, if any
      Neill thought children learned better when they are not forced to attend classes
    • Summerhill School
      Run as a democratic community
      Meetings are held to decide how the school should run
      Staff and students can attend meetings
      Everyone has an equal vote
    • Summerhill School
      The student body often consists of problematic backgrounds
      Often suffering from parental conflict of neglect
      Summerhill has a therapeutic value
      Majority of students who had been rejected at conventional schools flourish at Summerhill
      A.S. Neill served as headmaster and after his death his wife took over
      His daughter Zoe Neill Readhead is the current headmaster.
    • Criticism
      Often called the “Do as you please School”
      The right to stay away from lessons, forever if desired, were much more frightening for the mainstream education system.
