Community Research

RCEF aims for schooling to advance community development. Here, a student practices interviewing and data-collection skills by talking with a villager about what kind of books she prefers for a new village library. Afterwards, he adds his findings to the class and they perform simple statistical analysis to decide how many books of each category to purchase. They feel that their work and learning has a real effect and is important to benefiting their community.
