Building Collective Power for Radical Change

Building Collective Power for Radical Change

In the words of Ella Baker, "I use the term radical in its original meaning--getting down to and understanding the root cause. It means facing a system that does not lend itself to your needs and devising means by which you change that system." In 7 mins, I will share how our students are transforming education by solving real world problems through our centers: HackSchool (maker technology) and Street Knowledge (student voice and community organizing). Through co-creation and emergent curriculum, our students have designed and installed free food pantries, organized youth-led community healing circles, engineered smart canes, delivered empowerment curriculum to youth, and have been invited to the White House...twice! I'll conclude with a forecast on how we're pioneering the use of humanizing data and the road to our first center-based high school opening Fall.
