Update on the League's dedication to Democratic Learning

At the recent Spring Meeting we completed the first year of our emphasis on Democratic Learning. We are very excited about the work that is going on in League schools and, judging by your spirited presentations and comments on your evaluation sheets, you are too. If you will recall we, in our grade level groups, created one sentence definitions of democratic learning. The staff thought these definitions would be of help as you work to spread your work with democratic learning to your fellow teachers, students, and community members. At the meeting we, more or less, reached consensus on the following three definitions. We’ve included a fourth because it seemed to capture the key elements of democratic learning in an easy to remember format. Feel free to pick one of the following definitions or create your own. Hopefully, a year from now a majority of the people in your school community will share a common definition of democratic learning.
