Share Your Change Story

At IDEA, we've made a habit of sharing stories. We want to track and learn from what's happening on the ground. Story Journals help us accomplish that goal by offering a place for you to describe what you’re seeing and learning.

Is something changing in your school? Is the conversation starting to shift? Have you been part of a powerful change effort in your community?
We invite you to Share Your Change Story now and anytime you see actions and changes that should be shared. The stories become part of Learning Reportsblogs, and our online library of resources.
No need for lengthy polished writing - short sentences and bullet-points are just fine. Without a doubt the work you're doing is important. We'd love to know more about it and share it with others.

Make School a Democracy

Children will learn better. During the past four decades, this school — and thousands like it — have adopted what’s called the Escuela Nueva (New School) model - learning by doing, rather than being endlessly drilled for national exams.

The Throwaways

Timely and provocative, The Throwaways is more just than an illumination of marginalized people at their weakest moments; it is a call to action, a story of directly engaging in the fight for justice.
