A day in the life of Johnny…
Johnny is a typical 8th grade boy who loves football and video games. He wakes up at about 7 am with his dad, they eat breakfast together, dress and head out the door to catch the train. Not every student gets to ride the train with his dad to work, but that is because Johnny goes to work with his dad.
This is not ‘take your child to work day’, but ‘take your child to work with dad every day’. Let me tell you about the day in the life of Johnny:
Johnny attends a school called AIOA, an AdvancEd accredited, kindergarten-grade 12 school that provides Johnny with all of his academic needs. Johnny’s dad has arranged for a learning center to be facilitated through his place of employment so that Johnny and several other employee’s children can actually go to school at his dad’s place of work.
Yes, it is called a learning center, and it is a growing trend in the USA with these centers popping up all over the country including places of employment, churches and other venues. Learning centers are set up with a facilitator whose duties are to answer basic questions about the facility, maintain order, and help the students in an efficient learning environment, while AIOA teachers remotely work with the students on their studies. At Johnny’s learning center there are 8 other students of varying grade levels (one of the girls is actually earning university credits through AIOA), and all of them study on their own computers and on their own coursework. The students and facilitator often take their own field trips set up by the parents/students to enhance their education and create a well-balanced learning experience for the students.
