Michael Soguero is the Director of Professional Development at Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center. His work at Eagle Rock was covered in a recent article in Phi Delta Kappan which is reprinted on the Eagle Rock website.
According to the article:
Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center (ERS) in Estes Park, Colo., is a boarding school designed to re-engage students who already have dropped out and persuade them to stay in school and graduate. The school does this by giving students leadership positions, giving students as much time as they need to meet expectations, using interdisciplinary learning, and being willing to change the school to meet changing needs.
Michael and the rest of the faculty and students at Eagle Rock are accomplishing amazing things, putting into practice some of education’s most exciting and revolutionary theories.
