i wish i could go to this! i was in chicago last year, volunteering for a media reform organization, and i would definitely have been there to film it.

i'll be in Mongolia this year instead, researching participatory education and its role in conservation efforts in the Mongolian steppes.

love the blog, by the way. i am currently writing my undergraduate thesis on democratic education, and might cite this blog as an example of harnessing media for education.
