Even though the classroom was modeled around the conventional teacher centered set up with benches and desks, children were allowed to move around freely and were active partners in building and sharing knowledge. By any standards, children enjoyed freedom of expression that I could only dream of. Perhaps the small classroom size has something to do with it. I wonder how many school leaders and schools which operate on an industrial scale can pull off this feat. Perhaps there is indeed wisdom in “Small is beautiful”.
