Episode 25: School Meeting
How do important decisions get made in a self-directed democratic school? Do students really get to vote on the budget, the hiring and firing of staff, and other essential elements of school life? Find out on this episode of the Alpine Valley School podcast, where we delve into the School Meeting. Listen as three past School Meeting Chairs talk about their experiences in running the meeting, and discuss times when their job was frustrating, as well as when it was most rewarding. Join James Kashevos, Em Eliasen, and Efe Osemwengie as they talk about how School Meeting shaped their lives as young people, and how they continue to use those lessons in the adult world.
