Detroit Future Schools invites all educators, youth, parents and community members to join us for two important conversations about the purpose of education and the practice of transforming classrooms for a more just, creative, and collaborative world. These panels will be taking place in conjunction with the Detroit Future Schools Rida Institute.
This is the first part in a series of blog posts that will highlight lessons emerging from Detroit Future Schools. Our goal is to make our work to humanize schooling in Detroit "open-source" and accessible to other educators. Below, Ammerah Saidi, DFS Program Director, reflects on the process of creating intergenerational relationships between students and adults.
Detroit Future Schools is an in-school digital media arts program committed to humanizing schooling in Detroit and beyond. We work in a small number of anchor schools where we develop and evaluate core instructional practices. We then share our best practices through the DFS Network, a local and national network of teachers, artists and community members.
