Though It’s About You, It’s Also Not *All* About You

“I believe that education is the fundamental method of social progress and reform. All reforms which rest simply upon the law, or the threatening of certain penalties, or upon changes in mechanical or outward arrangements, are transitory and futile…. But through education society can formulate its own purposes, can organize its own means and resources, and thus shape itself with definiteness and economy in the direction in which it wishes to move…. Education thus conceived marks the most perfect and intimate union of science and art conceivable in human experience.”

–John Dewey, My Pedagogic Creed, 1897

A Destination

I recently ran across the Reach & Teach website. This organization’s tagline is “Transforming the world through teachable moments.”  They call themselves a social justice learning company.

LOVE IT!

On their website is a great collection of definitions of social justice. Please – take a tour.  May these ideas inspire!

And what’s more – they have a store!

I think we need this poster in my house:

ABCs of Living Green

And, OMG – check out their books!

I could stay here all day!
