A collection of articles from This Magazine is About School containing many first person narratives that argue that the current school system is rife with inequality and repression. Repo points out that "free" schools have less freedom than most people expect. One theme that does emerge is that through the emergence of common responsiblities in the 'free" system adult and children alike have started to feel like members of a large intense clan -- they have begun to feel like citizens for the first time.
