When Kids Rule the School
The Power and Promise of Democratic Education
Author and school founder Jim Rietmulder presents his new book, When Kids Rule the School. In democratic schools, kids practice life in a self-governed society: empowered as voters, bound by laws, challenged by choice, supported by community, and driven by nature. Through heartwarming stories and hard-headed details, hear how democratic schooling builds fulfilling lives as students and teachers govern together, making rules, managing the campus, and more. Hear about Harrisburg's own democratic school, The Circle School, one of dozens in America. The event is free and open to the public.
