We open doors for schools.
We collaborate to bring democratic processes and programs into schools: Providing innovative ways to help students become cooperators within their community and yet retain their authentic sense of self. We engage all stakeholders: welcoming parents into the learning process as well.. Children emerge as critical thinkers and active citizens. We are helping teachers embed these goals in their teaching practices to make the shift from a teacher centric to a learner-centered classroom.
We are commissioned to develop programs and workshops in public and private schools for fees. We also take tax deductible donations and we get grants to develop new programs.
We rely on tax deductible donations for much of our work.
We are always happy to receive donations so that we can conduct more research and work in schools with fewer resources. See our Boosters page to be added to our new Friends of PS 20 list.
For instance, we raised thousands of dollars for PS 20 in Brooklyn—a Title I school—to transform a classroom under the direction of the students themselves.
Inquiring Minds is honored to have Worldstudio Foundation as its fiscal conduit (scroll to bottom of page)..
