ALL in May (symposium in Massachusetts)

If you're in that area, please pass the link on to other locals who are already familiar with my site, Joyce's or the Always Learning list.

May 18-20, 2012
Always Learning Live Unschooling Symposium,
a short session in Massachusetts!
YMCA Harrington Outdoor Center (near Worcester — map)

Although it's too soon to make a paid reservation, I expect it will be about $100 per family, or not much more. Maybe less. We need to know more about expenses and the expected turnout, SO... if you know you might be interested in attending, please e-mail me:
