Education and Regeneration


  • Gregory Smith


Public schools in the 21st century are proving themselves to be remarkably impermeable to the efforts of progressive, environmental, and holistic educators. But the industrial growth societies served by these schools are now proving themselves to be surprisingly fragile in the face of a pandemic and a previously unthinkable war in Ukraine, to say nothing of climate change.  As this instability persists, spaces will open within which new visions and practices will be able to take root and grow.  Our task moving forward is to transform those spaces into sites of regeneration.
