the Chautauqua Charter School

(In Washington, DC for a Kettering Foundation board meeting): We have a partnership with the Chautauqua Learn and Serve Charter School in Panama City, Florida. This is a school that enrolls disabled children and adults and involves them in service and advocacy as part of their education. For example, the students have lobbied effectively for public transportation in their city. They visited me last week at Tufts, on their way to Iceland to see the self-sustaining village of Solihemar, which is a collaboration between disabled and non-disabled citizens. I have been following the students' travels on their blog (and recalling my own family visit to Iceland of several years ago).
