The Center for Reform of School Systems has created a Schools Model Project, and chosen Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School as one of the few schools to serve as a model for others.
"The School Models Project was conceived by School by Design and its partners to provide practice-based examples that address the question 'What could you do?' when considering change in a district, a network or an individual school."
Using an asset-based approach, they chose schools across the country that model excellent practice. Fannie Lou is one of the 15 schools selected. Click on the link to hear (and see in some cases) many of our best teachers and administrators describe what makes Fannie Lou a Model School.
