North Dakota Study Group on evaluation
Members gathering and interacting


The North Dakota Study Group on Evaluation (NDSG) is a diverse collective of progressive educators, artists, activists, historians, authors, scholars and students who come together annually to engage in an ongoing seminar on democratic possibilities in the U.S. and world education, branching out to include the related spheres of racial and social justice, culture, class and community activism. Members meet annually every President’s Day weekend to discuss, debate and develop solidarity. The NDSG has been a kind of informed democratic conscience of U.S. education, constantly reminding the mainstream of alternatives and possibilities, and offering a criticism of educational reform and practice in the light of enduring concerns with democracy and the estate of childhood.
