Mission

Harnessing the dynamic power of progressive practice for the next generation of students, schools, and democracy. Building on the common vision of pedagogy articulated by our forbearers in the Progressive Education Association and the Network of Progressive Educators, we are guided by a century-long legacy while enthusiastically embracing a commitment to diversity, equity and justice in our schools. PEN believes that the purpose of education transcends preparation for college or career. Schools nurture citizens in an increasingly diverse democracy.
