Service-Learning in K-12 Public Education. CIRCLE Fact Sheet.
Stagg, Allison
Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement
Service-learning is a curriculum-based form of community service that integrates classroom instruction and reflection with hands-on service experiences. While the number of schools organizing service-learning activities has not yet surpassed the large percentage of K-12 institutions that simply offer or organize community service, the pedagogy has experienced a surge in popularity over the past decade and is becoming an increasingly prevalent practice in public school classrooms. As of February 2004, over 10 percent of all K-12 public school students and 28 percent of all K-12 public institutions are involved in some type of service-learning, affecting approximately 4.7 million K-12 students in 23,000 public schools. This fact sheet offers a glimpse at the state of service-learning in public education today. (Contains 10 endnotes.)
