Why come to the Progressive Ed Summit?
Because the revolution won’t happen without you.
As Sir Ken Robinson points out in his book, Creative Schools, a revolution is underway to compel districts and states to give schools the power to transform themselves. He writes, “Although education is now a global issue, it is inevitably a grassroots process. Understanding that is the key to transformation. The world is undergoing revolutionary changes; we need a revolution in education too. Like most revolutions, this one had been brewing for a long time, and in many places it is already well underway. It is not coming from the top down; it is coming, as it must do, from the ground, up. ” (p. Xxvi)
Here’s how to spot the revolution around you. Think of the best schools you know. Who is making decisions? Who is engaged in creating that school? Where is the spark, the inspiration, the love? It’s happening in classrooms, hallways, parking lots, committee meetings and staff meetings. It’s happening in on-the-ground conversations with people who live and work every day with children and families — at the grassroots.
Grassroots transformation is what The Annual Progressive Education Summit is all about.
Each year, we gather at the Summit to exchange ideas, be inspired, make connections, and grow our community. We are like a flash mob, a self-forming community that is represented by folks across many sectors who want to transform themselves and their schools from the ground, up.
This year, we want you to join us. Come share the work you are doing. Come learn what others are working on. Come hear Susan Engle speak on curiosity and children’s ideas. Be part of the revolution!
Already coming to the Summit? Great! Tell folks why in the comment below.
