Schooling on Purpose Episode 2

In this episode Chris McNutt and Peter Hatala discuss Chris’s work as executive director of Human Restoration Project– an organization that supports schools and teachers in developing human-centric, equitable systems that will create better futures for all. Chris describes the origins and need for a project like HRP that seeks to humanize schools, the contours of the progressive thinking that guides their work, the resources they provide, and how teachers are using these resources in the classroom to help students find meaning and purpose in their work and lives. They consider: What does it mean to teach for purpose? To what extent can schools be sites for the development of deep meaning and purpose? And what might it look like for schools to place purpose at the center of programmatic and curricular decision-making. Find out more about Human Restoration Project at
