  • A few public schools across the country are trying a different approach to engaging their students in the learning process: using the surrounding communities and neighborhoods as classrooms. This creates not only a different type of learning environment, but also a different kind of student. This program showcases a diverse range of K-12 public schools across five states that have the potential to refocus the national debate around the direction that educational reform should take.
