Slide25 l.jpg

Schools as Community Learning Centres

“One way to be imaginative is to rethink how we use our existing stock of school buildings. We really are at a point where we need to put aside the old factory model of education that too often isolated the school from the community”

Secretary Richard Riley

U.S. Department of Education

October, 1999


Slide26 l.jpg

Schools in the Community: Location of Learning

“Now a final concept. We ought to look at every community as a living classroom and help our schools create new pathways to learning. The location of learning is often just as important as the size and organisation of a school. We have so much to gain by linking schools to museums, art and cultural groups, zoos, environmental centres, businesses and

non profit associations.”

Secretary Richard Riley

U.S. Department of Education

October, 1999
