About the Book
The term progressive in the field of education is almost faddish, usually misconstrued, or
sometimes plainly misunderstood. But for educators and school founders like us, progressive
has come to describe an alternative way of learning and teaching, a different way of viewing
school.
This book features the views on progressive education of its many stakeholders: school
administrators, teachers, parents, and students. It is our hope that our stories will not only
document our practice and our history, but also help forge our path ahead.
May all who read this book feel our immense pride and joy in working and learning with children.
—Ani Rosa Almario and Tina S. Zamora
