Education World: Place-Based Education Turns Towns into Classrooms
A School-Business Partnership
Cybrary Man wrote career education curriculum
for Open Doors in New York City in the 1970's and 1980's. This
organization helped the students in the New York City schools learn
about the economy, what makes the city function and what
possibilities exist for them.
Open Doors encouraged businesses to open their
doors to students through company tours, speakers, part-time jobs,
internships, the loan of transportation for class trips, and any other
approach that broke down the isolation of schools.
My wife was in charge of the very successful
“Lawyers in the Classroom Program.” This program not only had lawyers
speak to students but provided trips to the court system. Cybrary Man
is grateful to Open Doors for starting his writing career.
