Learning Centers

ONE OF THE MOST innovative forms of school restructuring is that of the learning center. Learning centers are more than ordinary schools; they provide assistance in vocational education, adult education/GED's, social work and job training. In Gainesville, FL, for example, learning centers provide what some have called "holistic learning" and "full-family service." While teenage dropouts attempt to gain job skills, parents may enroll in GED classes or proper parenting seminars. Learning center create a community environment within an educational setting. Life-long learning is inspired by giving people the skills to work, raise better families and become actively involved in the education reform process.

I'd like to examine other reform styles.
