-- [ Page 3 ] --

These recommendations are not given with false optimism or a naïve faith in a remarkable man. My intent was to depict the promise of this very rare opportunity in a tiny rural high school to realize a learning collective devoted to egalitarianism and justice. At present, American schools are in the throes of No Child Left Behind, a formula many educational leaders believe will lead to social inequity and service privatization, a major blow for a democratic nation. The efforts underway at Thompson are nothing less than a bright spotlight on a dimming stage. To concentrate on its shortcomings in the third year of progressive reform is to undercut the meager hope

–  –  –

that our children may experience the democratic education to which they are entitled, and not languish in socioeconomic forces reproducing their prospects.
