The optimum classroom doesn’t necessarily have desks arranged neatly in rows and bulletin boards lining the walls. The teacher isn’t seated at a desk, red pen and gradebook in hand.

Might you recognize your child’s classroom if it were a tall ship docked off the coast of Catalina? Could your student learn seated creek-side in the midst of a redwood forest? Would your child love school if it were held aboard a lunar module? Should your middle-schooler stand in the very spot at the Lincoln Memorial where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech?

    This feature is called School Scoop. Every Lodi school, both public and private, is provided with an opportunity to showcase their school to the community as scheduled by the Lodi News-Sentinel. It is up to each principal to submit an article and/or photos.

    This piece reads more like an advertisement than an article. Was the LNS paid to run it?

    K Lee... I couldn't agree more... When I home schooled my son for two years, I enjoyed the various places we went that gave him an opportunity to learn through experience rather than just a book. I so much liked seeing the joy in his eyes when experiencing that which made him curious.

    It's sure wonderful when students have the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom.

    Interesting print screw up - the print version of LNS stated, "Vinewood students can learn anywhere."

    When the spokesperson mentioned "God's thumbprint in science," I had to re-read to see what this article was really about.
