Unpacking Democracy and Education
Certificate of Attendance available
Malaguzzi said that education is “always a political discourse whether we know it or not. It is about working with cultural choices, but it clearly also means working with political choices.” The Reggio Approach welcomes differences as assets, values multiple perspectives and interpretations, integrates different disciplines and embraces complexity.
The Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota strategic plan states, “We envision a community that equips its people to invigorate democracy and expand the concept of learning.” How are democracy and education intertwined? What does this work look like? With examples drawn from local work as well as from Reggio, we will identify and discuss the practical strategies that support these values.
