Our Mission

The Lear Educational Center is dedicated to ensuring that all students reach their full potential. When traditional public school programs have not worked to advance a student, we turn to highly respected programs specifically designed for the student with learning differences.

Our educational philosophy is a belief that all students deserve the best teachers who are committed to research based professional development and use practices. Teachers who are actively engaged in the learning process and who maintain high expectations are proactive managers of learning.

We believe that the gap between research and Federal and State Practices is too wide on the continuum. For example, it is now known that “scientists estimate that 95 percent of all children can be taught to read, but statistics reveal an alarming prevalence of struggling and poor readers that is not limited to any one segment of society” (Closer Look V1.4 No.1). This indicates to us that language arts practices should be primary, but often may not be the primary focus in a school setting.

Since the Lear Educational Center opened in the year 2000 Ms. Lear has maintained a focus on bringing her center and peripheral professionals together as a functionally working team. The Lear Educational Center’s primary goal is that all children be self-directed learners. Children who read and write at grade level will be independent in all their studies and better prepared to reach their full potential.
