About Eureka! Inclusive: Eureka! Inclusive began with a set of parents in San Jose Unified School District who have children with disabilities.  The parents did not want a school that set their children apart, they wanted a school that recognized and met the needs of all students, including students with a variety of disabilities. Eureka! Inclusive has adopted a humanistic philosophy of inclusion and diversity, which recognizes that inclusion is not merely about including one group of students, rather it is based on the value that no student should be excluded. We are working to launch the first publicly funded intentionally inclusive and universally designed school in Santa Clara County in 2019. Learn more at www.eurekacharter.org

Out Of Eden Walk

https://outofeden.s3.amazonaws.com/OOEL_CLJ1_thepresentandthelocal.pdf

Join Us at Cahalan Park for a neighborhood walk as we join classrooms around the world on a mission to Slow Down, and  Find Humanity!

Paul Salopek’s 21,000-mile odyssey is a decade-long experiment in slow journalism. Moving at the beat of his footsteps, Paul is walking the pathways of the first humans who migrated out of Africa in the Stone Age and made the Earth ours. Along the way he is covering the major stories of our time—from climate change to technological innovation, from mass migration to cultural survival—by giving voice to the people who inhabit them every day. His words, as well as his photographs, video, and audio, create a global record of human life at the start of a new millennium as told by villagers, nomads, traders, farmers, soldiers, and artists who rarely make the news. In this way, if we choose to slow down and observe carefully, we also can rediscover our world.
