The Human Resources Center in Pontiac, Michigan is an educational institution designed to help develop talents and human potential from early childhood through adulthood. The Center offers a new approach to the problems of urban communities through comprehensive planning; education is made to serve a broader role than it has in the past. Surrounding the schools, various areas are being redeveloped. The Center itself is conceived of as achieving integration through usage; eventually it will serve approximately 2,100 students from its immediate area, and also provide educational programs for many others on a city-wide basis. This demands a radical reorganization of the school system's traditional approaches to curricula, teacher-aid technologies, and school architecture. In addition to innovative educational programs, the Center will offer cultural, auditorium, and exhibition facilities to Pontiac city; in-service training programs for Pontiac's educators; adult education; community services in health, welfare, and family counselling; facilities for pre-school programs; and, civic activities. In February 1970, ground for the Center was broken. (Author/JW)
