Recommitting to the Joyful Classroom
By the editors of Rethinking Schools
Joy is not an escape from the hard realities of our world, but a dive into them.
News from Rethinking Schools
We are looking for someone with organizational leadership experience, as well as an understanding of, and commitment to, supporting public education. Ideally, our new Executive Director will be someone who knows and loves Rethinking Schools — who has used our resources, and appreciates the essential role that our publications and activism play in working for the schools our children and communities deserve.
About Rethinking Schools
Rethinking Schools began in 1986, when a group of Milwaukee education activists — teachers, teacher educators, and community members — met to talk about how they could bring more critical voices into the conversation about public schools and libraries. These founding Rethinking Schools editors saw a school curriculum that was conservative, dumbed-down, and dominated by corporate-produced textbooks. Inappropriate standardized testing was rampant. Racial bias infected every level of schooling.
