Human Restoration Project is a 501(c)3 dedicated to research-backed progressive education, building systems that put students first through policy, practice, and social justice. We design our professional development to align with teachers of any grade or subject area.
We're former public school teachers and we understand that PD rarely feels worthwhile. Only 29% of teachers say they are satisfied with PD.
Our Human-Centered Schools process, detailed above, is aligned to graduate credit through Antioch University. Time and rates are flexible, usually lasting between 1-2 days on-site with students, then 1-2 workshops (half- or full-day, virtual or on-site) with educators.

Your group has articulated these things that I instinctually know but have lost in all my PD/ College Board years of training. I’m 25 years into this gig. Glad I can reacquaint myself with what originally got my into teaching and finish my career ethically whole.
Thank you for allowing us to feel and express our frustration in changing our thinking.
