Deepening the work of the League

The mission of the League, "To promote the school as a democratic learning community that is student-centered and focused on improving teaching and learning for all," has guided our work for the past 14 years. The League is considered a leader in the movement to empower teachers and local administrators to exert their professional responsibilities in school renewal efforts. Member schools have made great inroads in improving the quality of student learning by democratically creating (1) covenants of teaching and learning and then bringing these covenants to life using (2) shared governance and (3) action research. We want to continue and deepen this work by applying democratic principles to classrooms - what we call democratic learning.
