GEM mission

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
  1. participatory democratic principles,
  2. community empowerment,
  3. a challenging comprehensive and enriched curriculum,
  4. respect for cultural diversity, and
  5. 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.
