Join us in the Twin Cities for the 2019 Progressive Education Network Conference, Surrounded by abundant lakes, ponds and wetlands and by the shore of the Mississippi River, we will re-imagine progressive education for the 21st Century.

While we honor the historical sources of progressive philosophy, we want this conference to be a space that co- constructs, elevates and embraces new narratives, reflective of “respectfully collaborative and critical relationships between students, educators, parents/guardians, and the community.”

The PEN 2019 planning committee looks forward to another great conference at which we will introduce, renew, affirm and create progressive practices – creating a mighty current that will transform education. We are looking forward to all of the hands-on, energizing, thought provoking, inspiring workshops, roundtables and place-based experiences for the participants and educators converging in this wonderful natural setting in Minneapolis, Minnesota in October 2019.
