Educator Rick Ackerly, nationally recognized educator, speaker and author of The Genius in Every Child has dedicated his career to fostering thriving learning communities. His articles on education and diversity have appeared in many national publications, including the New York Times, Education Week, and the Independent School.
Rick recently visited AGC and witnessed the many ways in which our students and staff are challenging what a Chicago Public School is and can be. During his time at AGC, he “saw 200 young children in kindergarten through 3rd grade cooperating, taking responsibility, and solving problems of all kinds.” This article about his visit, featured here on his blog, was published Sunday in the Decatur Herald and Review. This was the Herald and Review’s second article on AGC this year.
