The Grassroots Education Movement (GEM) is committed to democratic principles in the governance, pedagogy, and culture of our public schools.
The GEM believes that every child has a constitutional civil and human right to a high quality, equitably funded, public education based on
- participatory democratic principles,
- community empowerment,
- a challenging comprehensive and enriched curriculum,
- respect for cultural diversity, and
- Universal Human Rights.
The GEM believes that education should prepare students to deeply understand the roots of inequality and be prepared to act to change the world.
