Service Learning solves problems

The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking that created them. Einstien.

The President of Duke University just made the most compelling argument for understanding service learning as a means to address community problems. And, I have to think that his argument applies equally to those of us working in the K-12, community based or higher education arenas.

His argument for bringing community problems into the classroom was followed by the President of Tulane University who is talking about how they are using service learning to rebuild New Orleans.

Service Learning is truly changing this country.

Congratulations to everyone who is making this happen in our communities.
