Westledge -- forty years later.
In the late 1960s, a group of progressive educators and parents founded an experimental school in the fields and woods of West Simsbury. No grades. Students setting most of the school's agendas. A mix of inner city students attending at no cost and affluent suburbanites paying compensa tory high tuition.
Westledge only lasted a few years, but it produced several hundred remarkable citizens who say the lessons of the school lasted a lifetime. They're finding each other now on -- where else? -- Facebook.
