On April 19, 24 teachers and community members filled the meeting room at the Beecher Community Resource Center to discuss place-based education, then briefly share their aspirations, goals and needs in a “speed dating” session.

Teachers said the whirlwind exercise gave them new perspectives on the projects they’re planning, as they move closer to writing applications for mini-grant funds that will support upcoming projects.

The session also helped acquaint representatives of community organizations with the place-based education initiatives happening in the Flint area.
