Visit to the Children’s Zone in Harlem

As part of the Klingenstein Heads Programme I had the privilege to visit the Harlem Children’s Zone today. This is one of the most impressive schools that I have visited and they really are developing the whole child by providing quality education, health services, food and an extensive service programme. As one of my colleagues shared this is probably the nearest that we have seen to what John Dewey envisioned when he described desirable schools. The children we met were confident, respectful, cared for and have ambition. Congratulations to everyone involved. The video clip is one of the students introducing President Obama.
