Place-based Education Evaluation Collaborative. 2010.

This 6-page brochure summarizes evaluation data from six place-based education programs representing more than 100 schools (rural, suburban, and urban) covering twelve states.The body of evidence reflects more than 1,000 adult interviews or focus group participants; more than 250 student interviews; more than 900 educator surveys; more than 2,700 student surveys; extensive document review; and dozens of on-site observations.

The findings are clear: place-based education fosters students' connection to place and creates vibrant partnerships between schools and communities. It boosts student achievement and improves environmental, social, and economic vitality.

In short, place-based education helps students learn to take care of the world by understanding where they live and taking action in their own backyards and communities.
