The Coalition of Essential Schools Announces "It's Elementary" a PreK-8th Grade National Initiative
Bonchek, Steve
Horace, v23 n3 Fall 2007
In March 2006, Deborah Meier asked Harmony Education Center (HEC) in Bloomington, Indiana to lead a national effort to engage more pre-kindergarten through eighth grade schools across the country in the work of the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES). Meier believed that although CES had always welcomed these schools, elementary educators felt that high schools had always received more attention and benefits from CES membership and participation at the Fall Forum. Meier said that HEC--home to a CES Center, Harmony School (a 200 student preK-12th grade school that has been a member of CES since 1994), and the National School Reform Faculty (NSRF)--was well positioned to coordinate this national effort. This article describes the development of "It's Elementary," the preK-8th grade national initiative.
