I'm looking for the same. Originally from the South Shore. Currently consulting in Charlotte and considering relocation to NC. I would be interested to know if you get any helpful feedback on progressive areas in general.

Thanks!

Siena

I am still a bit confused as to the whole "progressive" word. it is the same thing as liberal right? what happened to the word liberal? also, what exactly would be considered a "progressive" education? I am not knocking it, I am just wondering.

My thought was that WiKi would be the least disputed source:
Progressive education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IB curriculum would probably strike some folks as "progressive". Teaching based on International standards and an emphasis on empathy and values....

Well this thread went to hell real quick, oh well.

To the OP, are you looking for a specific area of NC, or just NC in general?

Common NC knowledge would say progressiveism (sp)? starts in Chapel Hill

"Progressive" used in regard to schools refers to their teaching methods rather more than what they teach. They started talking about progressive schools back in the 1920s, with people such as Maria Montessori and many others. Methods have evolved and fashions have changed over the years, but they are generally child-centered, innovative institutions.

Progressive does not mean liberal. It is what the philosopher john dewey had for his educational philosophy. Progressive is hands on learning, builds upon learning,prepare them for the world, real life experiences and materials, curriculum is based on the interests, needs and abilities of the children, and projects are part of the curriculum. It is the opposite of the traditional sit in your seat, memorize, do not use in the real world, everything from a text book approach. With progressive education, children will learn through subjects being integrated instead of separated, learn through hands on activities and through movement.for example, if the children are learning about the seasons they will explore outside, observe, document, conduct experiments and by doing this they learn the material. Real materials are used. For an example, in pre k and kindergarten classrooms children will be able to use hammers to make a shelf with help from teachers and teacher assistants or bake a cake using a stove etc with assistance. Look up John Dewey and Montessori and educate yourself on progressive education. John dewey is known for guided discovery as well

I expect Progressive means not the pitiful "Christian Schools" and their 4,000 year old earth and their ignorant disdain for science.
