-Learning must be based on interests and goals for each learner.
-A learner's curriculum must be relevant to the real world.

-Learning in the Real World -School Culture
-Authentic Assessment -Parent/Family Engagement
-School Organization -School/College Partnership
-Advisory Structure -Professional Development
