High school dropouts
Solving the dropout dilemma and violence in schools

In a world of supersonic change, new models of schooling are emerging around the world. Many of these new methods are covered in detail in the 544-page hardcover new edition of the world's biggest-selling nonfiction book in 1999, The Learning Revolution.
Co-authors Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos have selected these high schools as among their highly recommended models for the future:

The Kaizen model: Mt. Edgecumbe High School, in Sitka, Alaska. This is possibly the world's foremost example based on the Japanese business principle of Kaizen, or continuous improvement. Students set their own goals (miles higher than most teacher-set goals) and run four pilot companies as they learn a variety of talents and skills. (Page 400.)

The integrated studies model: Freyberg High School, Palmerston North, New Zealand. In a typical week, students might spent five days on a mountaineering field trip as they research history, geography, ecology and then record their findings using English, mathematics and computers. The three elements of integrated studies: (1) Interesting out-of-class project activities, combining research and exploration. (2) Student use of the computer as a tool for information processing and analysis. (3) History, geography, science, math, economics, writing, computing and other studies are linked together, not taught separately. (Page 412).

Lemshaga Barnakademi, in Sweden a combination preschool, elemetnary school and high school, a school that also blends nature inn with the world's best interactive technology. (Page 490).

The Overseas Family School, in Singapore. A private international school, with students from 26 nationalities, which also runs from preschool through to high school and beyond. (Page 499.)

The Learning Revolution covers many more models from around the world.
