Educational Considerations, v35 n1 p30-35 Fall 2007
Colvin Adult Learning Center (CALC) is a learning center where adults from different cultures, age groups, and different countries come together to address their educational weaknesses in order to work towards their life goals. It enjoys an excellent reputation in the community due to its history of providing quality instruction and assistance in making productive adults who can function in this community. However, inherent in having a multigenerational, multicultural, international student body is the problem of meeting the needs of those who come through its doors while providing the required standardized curriculum. In this article, the author introduces CALC and discusses some of the challenges and problems it has to deal with. (Contains 3 tables.)
