Community Learning Centers
Jennings, Wayne
DesignShare (NJ1)
The Community Learning Centers plan provides a systemically changed model for the 21st century. This top-to-bottom transformation of current education addresses all aspects of schools with a detailed framework to guide serious educational reformers. This fresh approach to principles of learning, curriculum, staffing, facilities, student as resource, parent roles, technology, staff development and more makes it possible to accomplish for all students the three major goals of education: responsible citizenship, productive work and lifelong learning. Generated with a large grant and based on sound research, the Community Learning Centers program gives courageous school and community leaders the background and practical information to create high performance schools.
