Debra Walker's curator insight, August 20, 2015 3:34 PM

Peter Hutton desgined and runs a school in which students make the most important decisions about their learning: what to study, when and with whom. There are no grade levels, no "periods" in the day, and the staff is co-hired with students. It's been incredibly successful!
