The Dignified Learning Project aims to revolutionize education by approaching teacher training, community engagement, and student services from a social justice perspective.
This non-profit was born from an idea: instead of just talking about theories in the classroom, we need to start using these ideas in our community to reshape education. We hear so much about reform, but so few ideas come at it with ideas that look at education as a whole - issues of homelessness or food, access to hygiene or computers, or issues in our system ranging from Pre-K through college.
The Dignified Learning Project has several goals: to make equitable education accessible in San Diego and to transform education to be focused on connection and reflectoin. We will do this through services, such as teacher training, including discussions on dialogical education and respectful techniques, community workshops that will explain disparities in our communities and our individual, community, civic, and social responsibilities, as well as student resources, from assisting with the college application process or providing help with developing extracurricular activities.
