It is organized as a series of conveenings and practitioner-led conversations regarding the current challenges of our progressive practice in NYC.  This session will be hosted at City-As-School, 16 Clarkson St. Lunch will be provided.



PENNY, Progressive Education Network New York, connects public, independent, charter, and teacher education schools and individuals of the greater metropolitan area to advance progressive pedagogy and promote equity, access, and social justice.

Through collaboration, advocacy and action, our driving purpose is to strengthen and broaden the impact of progressive education in the face of increasing challenges to full access to quality inclusive schooling.

With the increasing visibility of racial injustice, the rise of high-stakes standardized testing, and the ever-increasing gap between wealthy and poor communities, the democratic principles of progressive education have never felt more important and critical to families and students today. Community, voice, play, choice, observation, learning by doing – these beliefs within the context of our world and society are some of the principles the original progressive thinkers espoused.  With this network, we hope to build a shared understanding of these principles and what they look like in practice in our classrooms today.
