Will We Really?

As inauguration day nears, a group of leading progressive educators I admire, The Forum for Education & Democracy, has launched a site, Will We Really?, to promote five quite modest principles for raising children in 21st Century America.

Like so many other groups, this site features a petition to President-Elect Obama requesting that he and the Congress take steps to make the “five freedoms” outlined on the site a reality. There is also a community of educators and concerned citizens you may join on the site.

It’s refreshing that the progressive education movement is finally embracing the power of the web. We still have a way to go before equalling the power and influence of our our harshest critics online
