Live It Learn It connects students to the world beyond their classrooms through a variety of experiential programs. Erica Harper, program director, joins host Thomas Byrd on the June 27 edition of The Education Town Hall. Live It Learn It works with students in grades 4, 5 and 6. Their programs operate exclusively in Title I schools, with 50% of students served living east of the Anacostia (school/student map). www.LiveItLearnIt.org. "Learning should be fun and it no longer is fun for our students...We want them to take ownership of their lives and their learning."
