A micro-community approach to education with vision and values The U.S. education system has remained somewhat static as the world changes furiously around it.
The Basic School: A Community for Learning offers a model for the future.
The classroom -- and by extension, the school -- is positioned as a little community focused on learning.
Teachers are empowered with real leadership, parents are partners, resources are rich, and the curriculum is coherent and centralized.
This book describes how to bring this dream-school into reality through a series of small steps forward that, over time, become a journey through progress.
