Community Partnerships for Learning: Blurring the Lines. Forum Focus. Volume 1, Issue 2, September 2003
Yohalem, Nicole; Ebbert, Virginia Lee
Forum for Youth Investment
In this issue, we explore how community partnerships to support formal learning and development matter and how they can be created and sustained. In "Research Update," we discuss the results of a new report and poll on 21st century skills that affirms that every student needs a "basics plus" education that pushes beyond core academic knowledge to embrace 21st century skills and content that, as a result, must push beyond traditional methods of instruction and assessment. In "On the Ground," we take a look at Springfield, Massachusetts, one of the sites of CS2--Communities and Schools for Career Success, a strategy to galvanize community/school partnerships in support of learning across the district. In "Voices From the Fields," we interview Jean Thomases, a senior consultant with the Academy for Educational Development and the Forum, who has made a career out of "blurring the lines." (Contains 3 figures.)
