THE LEARNING COMMUNITY - GET SMART!

Audette, Cordeiro & Violette was very honored to support The Learning Community at their annual fundraiser, Get Smart!

The Learning Community, located in Central Falls, is one of Rhode Island's most innovative public charter schools. The school services over 500 students from Central Falls, Pawtucket and Providence, and has been featured nationally on MSNBC and in the New York Times.

Most recently, The Learning Community has been the center of attention because Latino students at the school have closed the achievement gap between Latino and white students in Rhode Island, which has existed as one of the ten largest achievement gaps in the country.  Learning Community Latino students outperformed Rhode Island’s white students in both math and writing and came within 4 percentage points in reading on the most recent state standardized New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) tests.   Latino students in The Learning Community’s elementary grades outperformed Rhode Island’s white elementary population in reading, writing and math.  The Learning Community is achieving this level of student performance not through a rote emphasis on test prep, but by building classroom communities that emphasize critical thinking, debate, inquiry and individual expression.  A true learning community. 

The event raises money for the amazing school and is a great night for the Rhode Island community to learn more about the incredible work that they do.  Learn more about The Learning Community and what it means for some of the most vulnerable communities in our state here: http://www.thelearningcommunity.com

RHODE ISLAND LAWYERS WEEKLY - ATTORNEY BOB AUDETTE DISCUSSES THE GOING-AND-COMING RULE

 

 

"East Providence’s Robert P. Audette represents claimants under both state law and the federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. While he considers the LHWCA generally employee-friendly on the issue, claimants under state law enjoy even more favorable treatment, Audette said.

'Compared to other jurisdictions, Rhode Island has been fairly inclusive on the going-and-coming rule,” the Audette, Cordeiro & Violette lawyer said. 'Courts have typically found in favor of the employee on the right facts.'"
