Toured #CT’s first #NetZero #school today. Thrilled our community worked so hard to bring this project to completion. Teachers integral to the design process built in flexibility, student centered infrastructure. Solar, geothermal, high efficiency design make for a #sustainable #green building that saves on operating costs, too. Whole process was transparent with excellent engagement, bipartisanship.

A group of people stand on a paved path looking at a long grey two story building with solar panels on the roof. Behind the building is a forest, just beside the group, a concrete stairway with metal railing goes up a hill along the building. Near the entrance, picnic tables sit on a patio area used as an outdoor classroom and art space.

In the classroom, blue and green bins filed with books fill shelves behind curvy modular tables with chairs and stools. Colorful pads line the window edge for seating. Student drawn portraits hang from a shelf across the windows that bounces light up into the room.

Just got back from touring the first and only net zero school in the state (CT, US). Thanks to the hard work and vision of many at the town and state, and transparent process and engagement for this gift to our community. Teachers were integral in design decisions; it’s flexible, maximizes natural light, incorporates outdoor learning space. Sustainability was the guiding principle. Solar, geothermal, efficient design.

The Doukhobors were pacifists who lived communally, rejected private ownership of land, and who rejected military institutions and war. For this, they were oppressed in Imperial Russia. Many fled to Canada in the late 1800s. The cost of their resettlement in Canada was funded by the Quakers, as well as by individuals, including Tolstoy and Kropotkin. Many worked as loggers, lumbermen, and carpenters. In Canada, they continued their passivism and activism, including demonstrations in the nude against militarism and conscription. From World War I until the 1970s, a faction known as Sons of Freedom carried out nude marches, night-time arson attacks and vandalism to protest militarism, compulsory education (where there was a history of abuse of Doukhobor children) and modern technology. In 1932, Canada criminalized public nudity in response to Doukhobor protests, arresting over 300 Doukhobor men and women, with average prison sentences of three years each.

In 1962, folksinger Malvina Reynolds, composed the song, “The Doukhobor Do,” about protesting in the nude. Pete Seeger covered the song.

Last day of #school. The kid's biking all the way home on her own for the first time.

We've been practicing for this day for weeks. She knows the rules, knows how to handle her bike, knows to look out for drivers because they're not looking out for her.

We can do this.

If you are out on the roads this afternoon, PLEASE keep your eyes peeled for happy kids about to embark on the best summer of their lives.

Violence erupted outside a #school board meeting as #LGBTQ+ activists and right-wing groups clashed over LGBTQ+ inclusion during #Pride Month.

On Tuesday (6 June) police were called to a school board meeting in the city of Glendale, California – just north of Los Angeles – after demonstrators came to blows with each other.

The confrontation happened as board members for the #Glendale Unified School District, which represents 25,000 #students, met to discuss recognising June as Pride Month. An agenda item they unanimously approved later in the evening.

The training ensures that committee participants follow the policies and procedures adopted by the FLDOE in November. Please visit the ELDOE website to find more information about instructional materials, adoption cycles, and FDOE policies

The committee selected the following state-adopted textbooks for implementation during the 23-24 school year. To review, just click on the appropriate link.

My son all day yesterday playing and not wanting to practice math for tomorrow's test because it's easy and he's got it.
At 21:15 last night - Mom we have to practice math.
My son is a smart kid that went through school like it was nothing but now math isn't something he can just brows and get an A.
Linear equations with fractions and one unknown are not something that can be passed without practice.

I'm amazed how much of it I remember from my school days but I'm sure we did it in highschool and not in the sixth grade.
Math I struggled with but physics I aced. Strange, I know 😁

It's not about the grades, it's about getting to know the limitations of your abilities and act accordingly.
Luckily, my son put aside his ego and decided to go to school this morning an hour early to practice math with his teacher and other kids that are struggling before the test.

I'm proud of him 😊

Even as thousands of scientists across the country protested the decision to slash evolution last month, it did not deter India’s National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) — the public body that designs curriculum and textbooks — from expanding its list of omitted topics."

"Self-censorship among teachers to face the reactionary wave in the classrooms: "There is a certain climate of fear"" by Laura Galaup (; in Spanish).

"The entry of an ultra-conservative discourse in schools causes some teachers to fear the reactions of families to talks on feminist issues, LGTBI and sex education: "The ultra-right is beginning to participate in parents' associations"".

""There is a certain climate of fear about the reaction of families to certain activities," admits Alicia, a guidance counselor at a public high school in the southern part of the Community of Madrid. Among her colleagues, she says, there is some fear that classes on sexuality and LGTBI diversity are perceived among parents "as indoctrination or an ideological issue" and not as human rights issues"".

Today in Labor History June 3, 1910: U.S. anarchists formed the Francisco Ferrer Association in Harlem, one year after the wrongful execution of anarchist educator Francisco Ferrer in Spain. The organization founded libertarian socialist schools throughout the U.S. based on the principles of Ferrer’s Modern Schools. The American Modern Schools were designed to counter the discipline, formality and regimentation of traditional American schools. Regular working-class people ran the schools for the children of workers. They sought to abolish all forms of authority, including educational, with the goal of creating a society based on free association and free thought. They emphasized learning by doing, as well as crafts and reading. They avoided rigid curricula, rote memorization and regimentation, as well as rewards and punishments. They also believed that learning was a life-long process that never ended. Therefore, parents and other adults were encouraged to participate in the operation of the schools and to attend evening and weekend lectures. Some of the speakers at these lectures included Clarence Darrow, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Jack London, Upton Sinclair, and Man Ray. The schools also served as cultural centers for the promotion of revolutionary unionism, free speech, sexual liberation, and anti-militarism.

laying in bed working on writing a story, it would seem that I really do like writing after all. I've always enjoyed storytelling and reading, but I struggled with english class. through elementary and high school, english was the one subject I dreaded. I struggled with keeping my grades on par with the rest of my classes, and I struggled to simply complete the work. writing a formal essay with word counts, mla formatting, and hard time limits led me to become adverse to writing as a whole. I stopped reading for fun in high school, and the act of reading became stressful, a task that needed to be performed. now I'm in university, and with my classes, strategically chosen to have as little formal writing as possible, I've started to write in ways I never had before. I've just begun writing down the stories I've had kicking around in my mind for years. as I work, the writing feels like a medium for an art form rather than something mechanical. there are no length requirements or ways it must be formatted. there is no ticking clock that holds the balance of some arbitrary pass or failure. I can just create, and I think that's something special

I agree with Alistair Campbell that one way to improve the discussion of (& arguments about) #politics is to engage the young (at #school), but I think including #primaryschool children as part of this idea is wrong-headed;

We have already robbed much of childhood's innocence & joy, turning it into an engine of #anxiety & stress (both in & outside school), lets at least leave the politics-talk until they get to secondary school (where, yes, it should be a bigger part of a revised curriculum)

A message from a primary school headteacher last week to his year 6 pupils, about the SATs they are having to take. These are government tests taken in the UK by kids aged 10 years old or so. #SATs #school #education #UK. (On a phone the alt text may be easier to read).

Message that reads: 
In the coming weeks you will sit your SATs tests for maths, reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation....there is something very important you must know.
The SATs test does not assess all of what makes each of you special and unique. The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you the way that we do and certainly not in the way your families do.
They do not know that some of you speak two languages or that you love to sing or draw. That some of you turn up every week before 8am on a Friday to play football. They have not seen your natural talent for dancing or playing a musical instrument. They do not know that your friends can count on you to be there for them, that your laughter can brighten the darkest day, that your face turns red when you feel shy or that you have a grumpy face until at least 10.00 every morning. They do not know that you participate in brownies, sports, wonder about the future, or sometimes help your little brother or sister after school. They do not know that you are kind, trustworthy and thoughtful and that every day you try to be your very best.
The levels you will get from this test will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything. There are many ways of being smart. You are smart! So while you are preparing for the test and in the midst of it all, remember that there is no way to 'test’ all of the amazing and awesome things that make you, YOU!
ts thank you ☕

Hey all, I’d appreciate your positive vibes, prayers, anything along this line as I look at my relationship with school/work. What did they teach me? How did this play out during my initial foray into adulthood? If there are unhealthy patterns then I want to ID them and make a helpful change. Here’s to being brave!

Our six-year-old handed us a note. His teacher had called my wife and I in for an emergency meeting. We asked our son if he had any idea why, and he said, "She didn't like a drawing I did."
We went in the next day.
His teacher pulled the drawing below out and said, "I asked him to draw his family and he drew this. Would you mind explaining?"
"Not at all." my wife said. "Family vacation. Snorkeling off the Bahamas.

Wow. Why did I never know about this 🤔
Now I want to #scan my #high #school #year #book, and upload it to the #internet #archive
With the hope that in 15 years someone will be searching for their grandparents and find their photos. 😁
