Effective citizenship for the 21st Century calls for young people adept at understanding a world of growing interdependence and multiculturalism. This means new intellectual foundations for understanding complexity and new learning skills for building shared understanding of complex issues like sustainability. Yet most of our schools remain much as they have long been, with sharply demarked subject matters and public education policies that stiffen these disciplinary identities. The result is that even older students have little mastery of understanding of the critical problems shaping their world. New educational outcomes require new educational systems - not just "school systems" in the traditional bureaucratic use of the word but learning communities within and beyond the school that can affect all aspects of children's lives. Peter will share information and invite conversation around current work to develop a network of innovative school systems pioneering a multi-layer view of curricular, institutional and community innovation.
