More Open Space Community Meetings

 In Partner Schools, Quality Schools Program

February 22, 2012

This past Sunday afternoon we had another open space meeting with members of community where Children’s Academy is being built. Nearly 200 attended, ranging in age from 1 – 85. See photos and video below. The theme was “How do we work together to make sure our children are getting a good education?”

Twelve breakout sessions were proposed, at least 6 of them proposed by kids 15 and under. I participated in a session proposed by Tobenson, just 12 years old: “What type of education should children receive?” Watching the community engage in both the construction of the school and in thinking through the vision for Children’s Academy is a source of hope for all of us involved.
