Education as Activism: The Rights of the Learner

Constance Kamii, ACT Lifetime Board Member, has written, “the time has come to stop being satisfied with conservative changes and to plan instead a Copernican revolution in education.” There is a pressing need in our country at this time to consider how education practice, research, theory, and systemic issues can increase the rights of all learners.

We invite educators to the 2018 conference which advocates for the rights of birth through college age learners. Constructivism focuses on rights of the learner and we look forward to a conference where these rights are discussed in areas of classroom environment, engagements, curriculum and a host of other topics ranging from systemic changes in our educational system to classroom specific practices.
