    Not that the students had to go to any of these sessions.(学期) At this school, students don’t get grades, don’t have homework, don’t take tests, and don’t even have to go to class — unless they want to.
    Free schools, which had their heyday (最为繁荣的时期) decades ago, operate on the belief that children are naturally curious and learn best when they want to, not when forced to. Today, the approach is getting another look from some parents and students tired of standardized testing, excessive (过多的) homework, and overly rigid curriculums.
   At the Brooklyn Free School, much of that decision-making occurs in a weekly gathering called the Democratic (民主的) Meeting. Here, students propose (提议) rules and set policy. Even the youngest kids have a vote equal to staffers.
    Students are required to show up(露面) for at least 5 hours a day, partly so that the school can meet legal definitions, but what they do with their time is up to them.
    But what about the basics? Long division(长除法), spelling, algebra(代数)? Is it enough to let a child decide when to learn those things? There are kids who sit and play video games all day. It seems that there should be a limit to that.
