Other Forms of Progressive Education

Even people in the 1940’s got the idea.

What high school should be all around

Now if school can be like the first video for mixed ages 3 to 13, with the inclusion of more involved personal finance education, and a democratic process, then the Met School as a follow-up would be a great alternative-alternative to people averse to full on free schools. Such a program would also be great at providing structure for kids that don’t get structure at home without dampening creativity. Likewise a met school can encourage parent responsibility and parent awareness of the child’s interests and education. This can turn many tides in low income communities. It can still be publicly funded. And with the narratives of the Met School, the government can happily receive portfolio assessments or whatever else accountability statement they  so treasure. This could be it.
