Governance Reading Group

Purpose:

This reading group was started with unabashed desire for both abolishing tuition and building better systems at this and other schools. Paradigms, goals, tactics and strategy for doing so are a touchstone for conversation. We get together weekly and talk about essays we agreed as a group to read.

Contribution:

Students from all three schools participate in dialogues about governance and civics. We learn about the contents of our readings which we then bring back to our other classes. We also gain experience in group dynamics, public speaking, & decision making.
