In a new interview with C.M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld, Josh Schachter, the Founder and Director of education initiative CommunityShare, states that many high school students become disengaged and/or drop out of school because “they don’t see the relevance of what they are learning.” CommunityShare is focused on re-imagining the relationship between schools and communities, and sees real-world learning in community projects as a critical pathway to addressing several interconnected problems that contribute to disconnection, isolation and fragmentation. The CommunityShare solution takes an ecosystemic approach that “activates the existing assets of an entire community.”

Hands-on experience in coursework with teachers and community leaders would improve curriculum relevance for students, especially those from lower socio-economic backgrounds who have “less access to informal mentors and less diverse networks of social capital than more affluent students, which can critically impact their social mobility, academic achievement and economic success,” according to Schachter.
