A COMMUNITY-BASED MICRO-SCHOOL THAT PRIORITIZES
AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES, RELATIONSHIP BUILDING AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
WHY LA LUZ?
Simply stated, school really hasn't changed in over 100 years and we know we can do much better! We want to see a fundamental change in the way kids are educated from teaching in a school to actually learning in the community. Learning should be more equitable, more engaging, more real-world, more in-line with current research, and really, more FUN!
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
We know learning can and should happen anywhere and at anytime, not just in a classroom! So we are working hard with partners in our community to create authentic six-week learning experiences. Sound different? It is! Check out our ideas and draft calendar for what learning might look like in 2021!
The COVID19 pandemic jolted us into a reality no one was prepared for. It also revealed many of the limitations of traditional models of school.
After hundreds of conversations, focus groups, and surveys, we are super excited to share all we have learned.
