RFA conducted a three-year evaluation of MicroSociety and examined the impact of the project as a comprehensive school reform model. MicroSociety is a whole school reform model in which teachers, students, parents, and community partners work together to build a functioning miniature society. As they build their society, young people discover the rules of justice and the functions of money, markets, and property. Schools across the country are adopting MicroSociety as a way to improve student achievement and help students see connections between school and their future lives.
