There are currently over 300 democratic schools around the world, in 32 countries - wikipedia

The oldest democratic school that still exists is Summerhill, in Suffolk, England, founded in 1921. It features voluntary class attendance and a School Meeting with broad powers.

In the 1960s, hundreds of schools opened based on Summerhill, however A.S. Neill, the founder of Summerhill, distanced himself from American Summerhill schools for not successfully implementing the philosophy of "Freedom, not license."
