Education Now | Learning and Living in Polarized Times 


As the nation has become more polarized politically, how are we talking with young people — at home, at school, on college campuses — about the values of democracy, about bridging our differences, and about finding common ground? How are we working to help young people make connections with and care for others who think very differently than they do? How can we learn to engage in the kind of “hard” caring that is central to a healthy society? Join us as we develop a new form of dialogue for our homes, schools, and communities — one that acknowledges divides while finding productive ways to cross them.
