  •  I'm familiar with Antioch & Hampshire... (2+ / 0-)

    My dad was an English professor and taught some classes at Antioch in Yellow Springs OH.  A more "alternative" college less academically focused might have been (or still be) an option for our kids at some point, particularly our daughter.  I think she does lack that environment of being surrounded by other talented people with similar interests.  I could see her benefiting, al least for a while, from living within a "colony" of other writers.

    Too bad it closed.  Our society has become so directed in our approach to education that anything that is not of that conventional path struggles to be recognized.
