Abstract: There is a need to resolve the difference between what schools are and what schools should be. To this end, there must be change within the K-12 curriculum which will enhance or otherwise improve the quality of living in schools. An initial step toward such change involves the identification of constraints within the curriculum. A further step is to seek ways to remove these constraints. The purpose of this study was to analyze the potential of community education for changing the K-12 curriculum. Community education was defined as a process for identifying and responding to community needs for continuous socialization, life-long learning, and problem solving.
