of San Francisco
You're at the right place for an excellent and out of the ordinary education in how society and the economy function.
The Henry George School offers inexpensive discussion-style classes revealing the fundamental social relationships involved in the production of the stuff people want, including housing, tools and recreational things.
If you're craving a deeper understanding as to why, amidst great total wealth in society, there are persistent issues around poverty, housing, wages, taxation, property rights and more, then we're confident you will find great illumination right here.
We use textbooks, film and hands-on materials to supplement our signature mode of education, namely guided discussion seminars. You're never too under or over-qualified for this methodology. Experience has shown that the high schooler can grasp the fundamental concepts we emphasize, but that the PhD in Economics will also eagerly engage in our curriculum, which challenges so many of the assumptions of existing schools of economics.
The Henry George School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religious affiliation, or any other distinction.
We've been in San Francisco since 1950 and graduated over 3,400 students in insights to social, economic and political matters that are liberating of heart and mind. We welcome your enrollment today!
Based as we are in San Francisco, we focus on George's life here in the city where he was married, fathered most of his children, and wrote his seminal masterpiece, Progress & Poverty (1879).
