"Democratic Learning" School in Boston Will Have No Grades, No "Real Teaching"



Plans are in the works for a new, non-profit day school in the Boston area that will offer an environment that is radically different from the vast majority of public and private school systems. 

It will be the first of its kind to operate in the immediate Boston area.

"One size doesn't fit all when it comes to schools. I think kids in the city need access to a school like this," said Cambridge resident Brooke Newman, 35, who is one of the founders of The Joan Rubin School.
