Educational Development Meeting – Lynn De Jonghe

October 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm PDT

We’re very excited that Lynn De Jonghe has agreed to join us this month to give a presentation on her forthcoming book, Starting with Whitehead: Raising Children to Thrive in Treacherous Times, to be published with Hamilton Books, a subsidiary of Rowman & Littlefield.

Dr. Lynn Sargent De Jonghe has had a career in progressive education that spans more than forty years. She served as the founding Head of East Bay Sierra School, which later merged with another school to form Prospect Sierra School, to become one of the preeminent schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. Prior to her work in independent schools, Lynn spent fifteen years in public education administering federal funds to innovative programs, advocating for project learning as an alternative to textbooks, and pushing for integration in Massachusetts schools. She received her BA degree in History from Harvard University and a MS in Library Science from Simmons College before completing her PhD in Education at Cornell University. Her doctoral work on children’s problem solving led her to push for challenging educational programs that encourage all students to pursue learning in depth and to use problem solving skills, collaborative learning, and exploration of values in an integrated curriculum. More broadly she is committed to social justice, to moving society from divisiveness to compassion, and to saving the sentient and becoming-sentient life on our planet.

We hope you can join us for what is sure to be a stimulating presentation by one of the process movement’s foremost experts on education.
