About Learning Cultures™:
Learning Cultures™ is a comprehensive school reform model based on the belief that human potential depends on resources of the culture. Within the curriculum, every child’s potential is realized through participation in classroom practices that are specifically designed to bring about increased levels of engagement, self-determination, persistence, and commitment to learning goals—dispositions that combine to support high levels of academic achievement.
