TransCenter’s schools have been visited and studied by educators from Russia, Japan, Germany, Great Britain, South Africa and from all over the United States. They have been featured in articles and books published by the National Center on Education and the Economy, Jobs for the Future, the Academy for Educational Development, the National Network for Youth, the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, the Carnegie Reporter, and Holistic Education Press.
