Strengthening the Learning that Safeguards Democracy
Today’s children are the citizens of tomorrow. They will inherit the task of safeguarding the principles and ideals of our democratic way of life. To prepare each new generation for this responsibility, we turn to our schools.
Educational institutions at every level must do more than simply prepare students to pass tests. They must ensure that all students receive the vibrant, rigorous education that enables engagement and informed citizenship.
The Goodlad Institute for Educational Renewal is founded on the belief that ongoing local renewal is key to good schools. Working with a network of school-university partnerships, the Institute studies and supports projects that engage communities in long-lasting educational renewal. It then uses its results to help refocus national conversations about what makes a "good school" and how to get there.
