    Where can educators learn more about Progressive Education?

    The National Institute of PEN

    Progressive Education prepares students for active participation in a democratic society, in the context of a child-centered

    environment, with an enduring commitment to social justice.

    -- Tom Little, Loving Learning

    Participants can expect to:

    • Develop powerful relationships with progressive educators from across the country

    • Strengthen knowledge of Progressive Education (history, pedagogy, ideals, and assessment)

    • Immerse in progressive school settings during both segments (one public, one independent)

    • Enhance progressive practices at their schools

    • Contribute to the mission of Progressive Education at large

    January 26-28, 2017* Open World Learning Community, Saint Paul, MN

    April 20-22, 2017* High Meadows School, Atlanta, GA

    *Participation in both segments is expected.

  • Dear Colleagues,

    We are thrilled to announce that NIPEN 4.0, the National Institute of the Progressive Education Network, is scheduled for the 2016- 2017 school year in two amazing locations: High Meadows School (Atlanta,GA) and the Open World Learning Community (St. Paul, MN). After 3 successful cohorts, we are looking forward to continuing the momentum begun by Maureen Cheever and Dan Schwartz, and in developing more great partnerships like the ones we have with our past NIPEN schools, listed below.

    Chris and I are pleased to be picking up the baton from Dan and Maureen for the coming school year. This is where we hope you can help us: will you share the flyer in your school and with colleagues whom you know would be interested in learning more about progressive practice? Our hope is to have a robust and diverse group of 24 educators from a wide variety of public and independent schools. Please help us spread the word about this wonderful 6- day immersive professional development experience, and don’t hesitate to be in touch with either of us if you have questions.

    Sincerely yours,

    Theresa Collins & Chris Collaros PEN Board President & Secretary, Co- Directors, NIPEN 4.0 contactus@progressiveeducationnetwork.org NIPEN@progressiveeducationnetwork.org
