Lab Schools and the 3 R’s: Reflect, Reframe, Reform
These themes are framed to guide us in looking back, forward, inward, and outward. It is a time to look back at the best of our past practices (Reflect). It is also a time to look forward and to consider the role of laboratory and university affiliated schools in furthering a 21st century education agenda in our schools and communities (Reframe). We must also acknowledge how the world has changed and actively create socially just, student-centered, research-based communities where all children will thrive (Reform). As educational leaders we are charged with leading the way to a better tomorrow.
Please plan to join educators from laboratory and university affiliated school around the world as we dialogue about these issues in the context of visiting innovative schools in New York City. Consider sharing your best work via paper, poster, workshop, or roundtable discussion. Click the 2014 Request for Proposals button below to download the RFP. Proposals are due by January 25, 2014.
