In his new book, “Lives of Passion, School of Hope,” educator Rick Posner makes the case that an alternative public school without grades, grade-point averages, grade levels or academic credits can produce involved, skilled and self-motivated adults for the 21st century.
Posner is deeply entwined with the philosophy and the history of the Jefferson County Open School in Lakewood. The school has been in existence in various forms since 1970 and today is a public school open to all Jeffco students.
