UACS Memphis Visit

University-Assisted Community Schools Concept Under Study By Memphis

Bob Kronick, Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling and founder of the University-Assisted Community Schools, has  a group of visitors this week. Fifteen Memphis educators are in Knoxville and touring Pond Gap Elementary School and the concept of the University-Assisted Community Schools.

Feroza Freeland, a sophomore who volunteers at Pond Gap and a student in Kronick’s service learning class, felt this concept could be applied to her hometown schools in Memphis.  After a meeting with them in the fall, Memphis educators decided to visit Knoxville and see it for themselves.
