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.

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.
