The following news release is provide by Sen. Bob Huff.
Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) outlines a new approach in education called Linked Learning in his Capitol Comment for the week of October 28th, 2013.
Senator Huff has words of high praise for the San Bernardino Linked Learning Consortium which includes Chino Valley, Colton Unified, San Bernardino City Unified, Upland Unified, Yucaipa-Calimesa, and the San Bernardino County Office of Education. All of these institutions have made a commitment to work together to use the Linked Learning approach as their high school improvement strategy.
"Linked Learning" combines rigorous academics with real world curriculum and experience. The Long Beach Unified School District adopted a Linked Learning approach several years ago, and Senator Huff notes it has had a big impact on student academics and increasing college enrollment rates.
Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Leader and represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter @bobhuff99. Visit Senator Huff's website at www.sen.ca.gov/huff.
