The League of Democratic Schools, a national organization with a Rocky Mountain chapter, promotes the idea that the primary purpose of schooling is to develop in children and youth the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for successful participation in the nation's social and political democracy.
Please explore this section of the website to learn more about the purpose and history of this organization. We welcome your questions and feedback; please contact Wyoming School-University Partnership director Audrey Kleinsasser at firstname.lastname@example.org or 307-766-6358.

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.
