When we wrote Timeless Learning, we wanted to share the narrative of progressive teachers and learners who believed Schools must become Homes of Opportunity. Schools that succeed have adults who talk about what their kids can do. They talk about the stories kids tell, the things kids make, the problems they solve, the way the collaborate, communicate, connect to the world. And when they’re really good you never hear the words “at risk,” or “title,” or “deficit,” when they plan. A school struggling with the ravages of American poverty, or the simple fact of American inequality, must first be a home — the kind of home the children may not have at home. A place that is relentlessly safe, that is both calming and exciting, that offers unconditional love, and that offers boundless opportunity. A home of opportunity. Come with your questions and let's talk.
