This project discusses the problem that changing needs, changing conditions, and changing expectations have caused in the rigid, non-changing, hierarchical system common in many public school districts, and attacks the problem by changing the roles of the key stakeholders, changing the rules of the relationships, changing the focus of the classroom, and changing the beliefs about leadership, involvement, learning, and the community in a vision of a dynamic, non-hierarchical model of school reform called the Community Learning School.
