as children at MBAT grow up learning the difference between freedom and license, they develop a sensitivity to living in a community that will last them for the rest of their lives.
I define a community as a group of people who have things in common. Living in a community means coming to terms with that. It means sorting out how you will manage the things you have in common and defending your own space- what you don’t have in common.
You are ready to participate in an authentic community. You share resources and experiences. Your school is self-governing through its community meetings and you pursue increasingly advanced levels of formal study in teacher-led lessons. This is what happens in Sama at MBAT House of Nature.
Here I talk about the divisions in the school. Why do we have them where they are? Comments welcome
