EfS Impact & Preparing for The Future We Want

OCTOBER 2015  


Thank You! Letter from a Parent: Derryfield School in Manchester New Hampshire

I work in the field all the time. I see happy teachers and beautiful units and courses that educate for sustainability. I see authentic assessment instruments carefully crafted to capture student learning, and I see student work as evidence that children and young people are thinking differently and contributing to sustainability as a result of what they are learning in school. What I don’t have the opportunity to see too often is letters like the one below. I am sure this is not a rare occurrence but it certainly is nice when people share what happens next. read on our blog
