IDEA: Institute for Democratic Education in America

IDEA’s mission is mobilizing action to advance meaningful learning and build a more just and sustainable democracy.   IDEA's vision is an engaged, informed, and energized majority that is clear about the role of education in a just society. Where enough people and communities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico have the tools, visions, stories, and strategies to create educational experiences and systems that lead towards young people and nations that are resourceful, equitable, and sustainable. Citizens are active, life-long learners who desire, create and utilize knowledge to improve their lives and their world.
