It's Time to Take #PENNYaction!

On January 20th, Inauguration Day, The Progressive Education Network of New York asked supporters to post pictures and text from their schools and classrooms that provided examples of learners engaged in experiences grounded in progressive pedagogy and, where possible, connected to the election and education for democracy. We believe that this action is important to: BRING OUR COMMUNITY TOGETHER so that we can continue to advocate more broadly on behalf of the learners with whom we work CONTINUE TO BUILD COALITIONS with those who are concerned about the future of education in America PROVIDE CONCRETE EXAMPLES of the power of progressive education to members of our local, state, and federal governments who are responsible for creating policy that will impact the work and lives of learners both young and old in our schools
