Category Archives: LEARN with Lynn

Lynn M. Finney: Activist and researcher, has spent the last two-plus researching systems theory and systems philosophy with a particular emphasis on education as it pertains to achieving the sustainable global environment. She home schooled two daughters. She has worked with legislators, both state and federal, on issues pertaining to systems governance, the sustainable global environment and education reform. She networks nationwide with other researchers and a growing body of citizens concerned about the transformation of our nation from a Constitutional Republic to a participatory democracy. We consider Lynn to be a great addition to our fight at the Metropolis Café as we will be posting her entire educational archives here from her now defunct website, in addition to new submissions. She WILL challenge you.

This is a massive project, so hold on to your hats…
