Education Alternatives for the Twenty-First Century

Transforming Education Society (TES) is committed supporting education alternatives for the 21st Century. We fulfill this commitment by sponsoring, partnering with, and mentoring programs and projects that promote inclusion and respect for all learners through education that is inquiry-based, learner-centered, collaborative, and non-oppressive.

We believe that the collaborative skills learned in this educational environment will make the learner:

  • Better able to consider alternative points of views
  • More likely to generate as well as appreciate innovative ideas
  • Better equipped to contribute to democratic discourse and practices
  • A more engaged and able member of a democratic society

We further believe that learning which emphasizes these attributes will better prepare youth not only to participate but also to thrive in 21st Century society.
