What would happen if the conversations you hear in this video were happening in every school across the nation?! The Sustainability Academy is a magnet elementary school in Burlington VT, and the first public elementary school in the nation with a mission of Education for Sustainability. The school has been developing a process by which the entire community is heard in developing a shared vision and yearly goals, based on the school's mission. With two Town Meetings per year, one in the fall and one in the spring - the school is in a continuous process of gathering the community's ideas and dreams, setting and launching clear goals, involving everyone in carrying through on those goals, and celebrating successes. Rinse, repeat. What would happen if the conversations you hear in this video were happening in every school across the nation?!
