This third issue of the New Village Journal contains a collection of educational programs that contribute to the enhancement of community — programs that show the transformation of competition-based learning into compassion-based learning, textbook learning into experiential learning, and rote learning into imaginative learning.

Many of the programs documented here, such as university/community partnerships, offer not only progressive curricula and enlightened research methods, but exhibit in their very structure a model for healthy community teamwork.
