Summary

Adults set their priorities every day. Why don't we allow students to do the same? Based on the work of Edward L. Deci, and his research on autonomous structures, Design Tech High School has created a bell schedule...a culture...where students have time to lobby city councils for teenage involvement, attain internships at Oracle and spend time building a hydrogen engine for cars at Stanford, all at the age of 15. Get a glimpse on what it means to build a school that is student centered by creating an innovative bell schedule and a culture where "everything has an expiration date."
