Events: Progressive Education & Public Schools
#progressiveed I'm at the Progressive Education Network conference in Chicago today -- just finished listening to a good panel on "bringing progressive ideas to greater numbers of students" (ie, public schools and districts). There are some interesting people moving back and forth between public and private schools, bringing progressive ideas with them, and a few hybrid kinds of institutions that are public, progressive, and serve a diverse group of kids. Of course there are still pockets of progressive education in public schools, both well-known and somewhat secret. If you know of any great examples of progressive public education, or insightful voices about the challenges and opportunities of progressivism in public education, please let me know. I've got a lot to learn.
