<p>Some pedagogues founded schools in the context of reformed pedagogics, which at the beginning of the 20<sup>th</sup> century was intending to give a modern answer to the encrusted structures of school in the Wilhelminian and Victorian period. They introduced the participation of the pupils for the first time, both concerning the teaching contents and the rules of coexistence at school. Often, the co-educative, exercise of the sport in the nude and naturist activities in the spare time played a role, too.</p>
<p>For Germany, we have to mention essentially the <i>Lichtschulheim Lüneburger Land (LLL)</i> in the <i>Lüneburg Heath</i> near <i>Glüsingen</i>. Walter Fränzel founded and managed that school. It existed from 1927 to 1933 – then the Nazis put an end to the project. The educational concept emphasized friendly contact between teachers and pupils, physical training through much sport and leisure time in nature.</p>
<p>Compared to other schools (where one practised only the sports lessons in the nude), one lived out the naturism in a particu¬larly distinctive manner at the LLL: Once the temperature allowed, one was nude together at school and in the surrounding area. Today, the <a href="/ http://www.lichtheideheim.de " target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Lichtheideheim</i></a> is a naturist holiday resort with camping facilities.</p>

<!--p>The <a href="/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odenwaldschule " target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Odenwald School</i></a> was founded by the <i>Geheeb</i> couple in 1910 and closed in 1939 by the Nazis. The pedagogy had the motto "Become, who you are" of the Greek poet <i>Pindar</i>. There were no classes by age-group, but groups, in which each child received his or her support and learning stimuli according to their interests and talents. The relationship between teachers and pupils was open and partnership-oriented, they lived together in "families" of mixed age.</p-->
<p>In England, the <a href="/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summerhill_School " target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Summerhill School</i></a>, was founded by A.S. Neill in 1921 in Suffolk. Here, a steering-committee equaly composed of pupils and teachers – the first real school democracy – determined  all the details of school life. The instruction was voluntary. The <i>Summerhill School</i> exists to this day.</p>
<p>At the <i>Beacon Hill School</i>, which the mathematician and philosopher <a href="/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_Russell " target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Bertrand Russell</i></a> founded together with his wife Dora in 1927, sports lessons were given in the nude. The libertarian, progressive school should convey rational thinking. After the separation of Betrand Russell in 1932, Dora Black headed the school until 1943.</p>
