This bulletin describes the New York City Children's Community Workshop School, the school being founded on the premise that children learn best through concrete activities which relate to the experiences of everyday life. Serving a mixed racial population of Black, Puerto Rican and caucasian students, the students (five and one-half to 11 years old) represent an economic balance of two-thirds disadvantaged and one-third privileged. Classes are ungraded and parent participation is stressed. (KG)
