Stuart McIntyre is Community Learning Center Project Director at the Ohio Federation of Teachers. He provides coaching and technical assistance to educators and community leaders across the state exploring & implementing the Community Learning Center model, and facilitates a statewide peer-to-peer learning community of practitioners.
As an Ohio public school graduate and the son of an Ohio public school teacher, Stuart’s life has been shaped by the transformative power of community-centered public schools. His perspective is informed by the proverb: “it takes a village to raise a child”. He views the Community Learning Center model as an effort to restore the “village”, and to foster the capacity of communities to build social power toward racial and economic equity and social justice.
