 UW Lab School Students

Public schooling is the only educative experience shared by almost every single person in a free society. No institution exists in the modern world other than our schools that can begin to fulfill this most essential and fundamental responsibility. Democracy's tomorrow depends very much on what goes on in classrooms today.
