The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 81

A Junior Republic

A Junior Republic.

It is a town or colony of young people; an organization that aims to instil into the minds of boys and girls principles of self-reliance and self-government, by giving them actual powers and duties of citizenship in a minature state wherein are operating the same economic, social and civic conditions that they will find outside on leaving the Republic. It is merely a frank acceptance of existing conditions. It is not an institution with inmates, where officers have absolute authority over them; it is not a school with instructors and rules; it is what its name signifies—a Junior Republic; A Republic of the children, by the children and for the children.
