Neil & Summerhill: A Man and His Work
A pictorial study by John Walmsley
A.S. Neill had a vision for a school that respected school children as individuals. A rare school, Summerhill stood amongst the draconian prisons (schools) of England. A.S. Neill shared an enthusiasm for child-built learning environments, similar to the philosophy of Lady Allen. Summerhill lost in a sense, to the screen, and bureaucracy of local government. The pictorial study of the school lets you glimpse back and feel a pang of jealously that you didn’t get to attend such a weird and nonconformist school.
