Declining Enrollments: Problem or Opportunity?
Steele, Marilyn
The basic assumption of this paper is that unused and underused public school buildings are appropriate facilities to become opportunity centers for neighborhood citizens of all ages. A detailed case study of a community education program in Grand Rapids, Michigan, illustrates this assumption, and a brief historical summary of changing population statistics documents the enrollment decline. The description of community education in Grand Rapids details uses of empty classrooms, alternative offerings in adult education, leisure activities, a factory-based industrial program, and the use of related community facilities for educational purposes. A budget summary of the Grand Rapids program is included in Appendix A. (Author)
