Day of Common Learning

Description

When it comes to P-12 education, we all have a story, or many stories. We spend almost half of our childhood and adolescent days in schools, most but not all of us in public schools. Not only do we have our own stories, but public (and private) schooling in America has its own story, a heritage of sorts, though one with many strands. The American educational heritage is linked to the preparation of democratic citizens, so its historic successes and failures are of paramount importance. We will tell some shared and/or distinct stories about American education writ large, and solicit your responses as well as the stories you can tell about your 13 or so years in pre-collegiate education.
