Jim Rietmulder Speaking Event | January 15th

Why are so many schools so out of touch? How might we make them relevant again? As a founder and 30-year staff member at The Circle School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Jim Rietmulder has had many opportunities to explore these questions.

As it turns out, self-directed learning in mixed-age, democratic communities helps people master what they most need in the ways that work best for them. On Thursday, January 15 at 6pm, come hear Jim describe what we at Alpine Valley School we call “real learning for real life.” After all, it’s hard to get a lot more relevant than this.
