About Ben

Ben Draper is the executive director at the Macomber Center in Framingham, MA, a self-directed learning community for children ages 5 to 18. The Macomber Center has no curriculum, no requirements, and no evaluations of any kind. Instead, children are free to play and explore within a community of other children, with support from knowledgeable, helpful adults. His interests include the history and philosophy of radical pedagogy and children’s rights.
