Winnipeg Centre Project.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Centre Project is a field-based, work-study program that attempts to create more appropriate education for the inner-city child. Sponsored by the Planning and Research Branch of the Department of Colleges and Universities Affairs and administered by Brandon University in consultation with the Winnipeg School Division, the project is providing teacher training to 12 inner-city, minority group residents. The project is scheduled to run for 3 years and will involve 40-45 students. The main objective of the project is to provide teacher training to people who share common experiences with students from the inner city. The program itself involves not only university course work but 12-15 hours of student teaching each week, plus volunteer activities. Although the project has some disadvantages, statements from participants indicate a positive additude toward the project. (BRB)
