A few months ago, I fell upon a WordPress blog called¬†Cooperative Catalyst: Changing Education as We Speak. In a recent post, Nikhil Goyal discusses the Millennial’s aka “Generation Screwed” and how Democratic Schools are giving students a space to vocalize their thoughts and make decisions.¬†This creates “solutionaries” or self-directed learners who build on their collaborative skills and bring their community together while teachers/mentors play the role as the “guide on the side.”

Finally, a place where the voice, opinions and ideas of youth are put into action! How wonderful to give children who are building our future a chance to… control and build our future!
