The Children's School is excited to announce a new video series featuring our founder, Daniel P. Ryan, Ed.D. titled "Why Progressive Education?" You can find the series on our YouTube channel and on key pages of our new website.
The 11 short videos range from 2-7 minutes each. They are designed to inform and serve as a resource for prospective families who are making choices about a school for their child. However, the videos are also designed as a tool for current families, faculty and board members. They not only give all of us the opportunity to better understand the progressive education philosophy, they are a way to easily share more about TCS and progressive education with family members, neighbors and friends.
Here is the first video, titled "Why Progressive Education?" - The Progressive Education Approach:
Other video titles in the series include: The Difference From Other Schools / On Standardized Tests, Grades and Assessment / Emergent Curriculum / Regarding Technology / Play-Based Learning / Adolescents and Progressive Ed / Preparation for High School / Democracy in Action / Social Justice / Early Days (from TCS History)
The Children's School is fortunate to have a founder who is a noted leader in the field of progressive education. In addition to our featured speaker, Daniel P. Ryan, the video series was made possible thanks to the work of TCS parents Dan Andries and Anne Northrup in addition to TCS communications coordinator, Tracy Litsey.
Please share these videos with friends, extended family, neighbors, and on your social networks!
