A Place in Society. . .for Everyone. Brandywine Educational Park.
Wilmington Public Schools, DE.
The Wilmington, Delaware, public school system plans to create a new educational facility designed to meet the special educational needs of urban students. To be called Brandywine Educational Park, this facility will consist of four interrelated centers, each one designed to correct a deficiency of the traditional academic public educational system. The Career Development Center will attempt to prepare students for economic roles, optimizing the fit between student expectations and job fulfillment. The Urban Center for Innovation and Continuing Education will pursue innovations to improve educational practices and will provide educational programs for persons who discontinued formal schooling. The Opportunity Center for Mentally Handicapped Children will provide a training program for retarded students. The Center for the Creative and Performing Arts will provide programs to stimulate students' creativity and imagination. It is contemplated that an existing urban high school can be transformed into such an educational facility. (RA)
