Creating Open Education Systems
In-Person Session
Is your system “open” or “closed”? Closed systems keep families and communities at arms length, limiting their engagement and empowerment. Open classrooms, open schools and open districts engage in true partnership with key stakeholders to co-create policies and systems. In this session, community leaders and educators share techniques for co-creating with your community, in service of greater equity and liberation. We’ll share real examples and insights from implementation from the Kentucky Coalition for Advancing Education, a state-wide coalition that has partnered with the Commissioner of Education to reimagine the future of education in Kentucky.
