Cristo Rey Model Combines Classroom Study with Work Experience
Ohio Governor John Kasich recently praised the Catholic Christo Rey model of education and said he wishes the state could incorporate it as a public school option. So how exactly is Christo Rey different? For one thing, students spend a quarter of their school time working in actual jobs outside the classroom. Their earnings help cover tuition, they get valuable training and they may make contacts for a future career.
