On April 2, 2020, the Middle School movement lost one of its founders, Dr. John H. Lounsbury. Dr. Lounsbury was often called “The Father of the Middle School Philosophy” and he was one of the founders of the National Middle School Association, now known as the Association for Middle Level Education.
During the Association of Middle Level Education’s Annual Conference, a tribute video was shared as well as samples of John’s work. We encourage you as the educators of young adolescents to take time to watch the video and read some of his work.
