Our School: Searching for Community in the Era of Choice
In Our School (Teachers College Press), education activist Sam Chaltain documents a year in the life of two schools in the nation's capital — one a new charter school just opening its doors, the other a neighborhood school that first opened in 1924. Chaltain weaves together the observations and emotions of the people whose lives intersect there, and the triumphs and the challenges they experience. The result is an unsettling, complex portrayal of American public education. This event is sponsored by the Institute for Democratic Education in America (IDEA). Chaltain will be joined in conversation by Kali Ladd and Zalika Gardner of KairosPDX.
