Approximately 80 students in grades three through eight are participating in Claflin University's Freedom School. Currently in its eighth year of operation, the six-week program will conclude on July 26.
The Freedom School program follows the Integrated Reading Curriculum which promotes multicultural learning, reading, and creative activities that reinforce non-violent conflict resolution and cooperation. At Claflin, the students also learn academic and life skills through interactive activities such as coding, chess, science with cooking, speaking Portuguese, Zumba exercises and individual reading assignments.
