The Curriculum and Pedagogy group works to create and foster a democratic space in which diverse individuals seeking academic enrichment and professional engagement commit to educational reform and social change. A decision-making Town Hall is held at the annual conference. All members of the organization are invited to participate in a modified consensus process to determine the work of the organization. A member is any person who has attended a conference in the last three years. Between conferences, the work of the organization is directed by the Governance Council.
The Governance Council consists of 12 members each serving a three-year term and representing the diversity of the membership. Those present at the annual conference elect four new members to the council to replace the four whose term is ending. The Council establishes procedures and guidelines for conducting its business consistent with the philosophy of the organization. However, any policy and procedure are subject to review and revision by the membership at the Annual Meeting, which as a body of the whole, is the sole and final decision-making body of this organization.
We seek to create a space in which to advance the ideals of progressive curriculum and democratic leadership in education through dialogue and action.
