Choosing College: How to Make Better Learning Decisions Throughout Your Life
This book is about addressing the college-choosing problem. The rankings, metrics, analytics, college visits, and advice that we use today to help us make these decisions are out of step with the progress individual students are trying to make. They don’t give students and families the information and context they need to make such a high-stakes decision about whether and where to get an education. Choosing College offers guidance and true options on how to successfully choose your pathway.
Film Screening | Rise: Voice of a New Generation by Jon Long
Join us Tuesday, October 29, at 6:00 pm in the Mojave Learning Center to view the film, Rise: Voice of a New Generation, which captures the story of One Stone, a one-of-a-kind, student-led high school in Boise, Idaho, that is reinventing education and changing the balance of power to put students in charge of their own learning. The film documents the journey of students and coaches at the school as they launch what has been named one of the most progressive schools in America by both Alan Gottlieb (co-author of America Succeeds’ 2017 report Age of Agility) and Tom Vander Ark (CEO of Getting Smart). Follow the story of one of the only schools in the country run by students who are exploring a new way forward, where their voices shape the future of education and the world.
