Progressive Education and Making, a personal reflection


by Heather Pang -

I have been thinking about making and progressive education for a while. We started taking our children to the maker fair years ago, and we have a long history with Peninsula School http://www.peninsulaschool.org in Menlo Park, CA. My sister and I attended the school in the 70s from kindergarten to 8th grade, and one of the reasons my husband and I moved into the neighborhood we did was to send our children there. They started in nursery, and my daughter graduated last year; my son is in 6th grade.
