There is a problem with the educational system in place today. There is not enough emphasis on learning life skills and too much emphasis on evaluation through formal testing and marking. This thesis intends to explore the options and benefits not yet developed in today’s education. Society should not forget to be educating America’s young with the skills and knowledge that they will need in everyday life. The Life Skills Center is 92,000 sqft allowing for the use of education to inspire and revive the youth as well as the community of this diverse area in Minneapolis.
