It is time for a new framework for learning that matches who we are today and where we would like to go as a society. This new paradigm starts with the student-teacher relationship.
Education as a commodity is inherently discriminatory and reinforces social stratification. And it isn’t just private education that supports this approach.
The entire program is built on the idea that purpose should drive all learning, including formal learning.
The entire curriculum will be based on and guided by the most current NYC sustainability efforts, particularly as they relate to flood mitigation.
In the same way that students can surpass teachers in our time, so can age become irrelevant in a learning environment. At Future Earth Academy there are no grades or age divisions.
Diversity is about perspective and orientation and it is the engine of the Future Earth Academy curriculum. The integrity of the learning is rooted in diverse points of view.
