Every year, on the third Fiday in March, all Dalton schools open their doors for everyone who like to observe the Dalton Education.
It would be great if all Dalton schools in Europe follow this tradition.
In Dutch Dalton schools will be 100.000 students in short time. This will be celebrated in a new Dalton school very soon.

*that Parkhurst's school as a community distinguishes itself from Dewey's school as a community; and
