Description

Education plays a vitally important role in building foundations for social progress. This remarkable collection describes educational models based on the principles of tolerance, equity and justice developed over the past three decades by teachers, parents, activists and students. In a time of crippling cutbacks and educational reforms designed to promote "business" over "education," this book is critical reading. Contributors from across Canada discuss the initiatives behind their approaches, how they developed curricula and the future of their educational work.
Weaving Connections is a call to action by progressive educators, inviting us to cherish educational models that teach us how to live in harmony, respect and balance with one another.
