Mankato Wilson Campus School Remembered by Minnesota State University and IALA

Price: $30, Members $25 + $5 shipping

Description: This 60 minute videotape portrays the Wilson research and development learning center for the State of Minnesota, a program considered the most innovative public year-round alternatives environment in the nation from 1968-1978. Included with each order is a 26 page copy of the narrative. The school underwent 69 changes overnight, ultimately leading to major changes in Minnesota legislation, including charter schools, open enrollment, post-secondary options and area learning centers. The tape's quality is a bit uneven but it sends a clear message about future schools.
