It Takes a City For Youth to Thrive
Tony Gerlicz | Co-Director, Inspire Santa Fe | My View, Santa Fe New Mexican
Imagine adults across the city of Santa Fe using their workplaces as ad-hoc learning environments that provide enriching, real-world experiences and inspiration to youth. We “flip” the classroom dynamic 180 degrees so that students determine what they want to learn, and the incredible talent that lives here in Santa Fe provides the guidance; all this while complementing classroom skills.
This “dream” already is happening in our city, introduced to Santa Fe 18 years ago by educator Paquita Hernandez as the core of Monte del Sol Charter School.
