Liz would find, for example, Daniel Greenberg's Ph.D. dissertation in child psychology at the University of Minnesota, in which he showed that children raised in intentional communities with a stable population (not with a high turnover) tended to have higher confidence, higher competence, more developed social skills, and more developed verbal skills that children of the same age raised in non- community, mainstream culture. (By the way, Daniel Greenberg continued his focus on intentional communities, and began and continues to run Living Routes Educational Consortium in Amherst, MA, a study-abroad program in which college students live in various ecovillage communities in India, France, Scotland, and elsewhere, for credit with the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.)

Is that the same Danny Greenberg at Sudbury Valley School in Framingham, MA? (that's the sort of thing I have a hard time finding out from google!)
