Abstract:
Ellerbe is a little village of approximately 700 people and is located in the sandhills of Richmond County. Ellerbe has the finest public school in the State and it is doing unusual work that brings educators from all over the country to study their method. It is a school of 1,044 pupils and 31 teachers and is part of the state school system, but it isn't ruled, controlled and disciplined by teachers: it is run by the students themselves.

Abstract:
Frances Alexander counts success one young life at a time. In the last 16 months alone, she can count at least 30 of them. During that time, by sheer force of will, the diminutive 69-year-old retired teacher has founded her own nonprofit school for at-risk youth, enrolled over 100 Durham high school drop-outs, urged them out of violent, gang-ridden lives, and given them a second chance at education and a real life. The 30 she has enrolled can be described as unqualified success stories: GEDs earned, college or vocational school attended. Dozens of others are still working hard to yank their lives back on track.

Abstract:
What makes a town live? The answer to that question is complex. But researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, by applying a new teaching technique--dramatic play, have demonstrated that second-grade students can understand community interactions such as those based in a municipality. The children learned how a town operates by building their own town and acting out the occupations needed to keep the town running.
