What does successful school reform look like? Innovative educators from a NYC school will talk about how behavior and psychological theories were at the core of their successful school reform. This NYC school, The Urban Assembly School for Green Careers, provides an alternative narrative to relationship building and Restorative Justice practices. With a few core theories and a student-centered approach, this school went from an "F" rating and 39% graduation rate to top Quality Review scores and over 80% graduation rate and significant reductions in suspension. How can you serve your most difficult student populations in ways that honor their humanity and allow students to practice a Pedagogy of Freedom? Come work with us to hear how your students can transform the culture of your school!
