Guest host Barrie Silver speaks with Josepha Austin, a special education teacher at Burlington High School, Sparks, Director of Equity for the Burlington School District, Ella Causer, a junior at Burlington High School, and Key Nguyen, a junior at Winooski Middle/High School on an October 2015 trip by 24 educators and students from Burlington and Winooski High Schools to New York City on an education innovation tour sponsored by the Partnership for Change and facilitated by I.D.E.A - the Institute for Democratic Education in America. The goals for the tour were for participants to: (1) see "examples in action" of school programs, systems, and learning environments similar to those we are aiming to develop in Winooski and Burlington; and (2) bring back ideas, resources, and insights to share and apply in our own school communities. The tour was designed with the aim of creating a learning community among participants so that they can support each other in bringing what they experience back home.
