There are no assignments or grades. But for two semesters every year, senior citizens go back to school. It's the Institute for Retired Persons (IRP), a program dedicated to lifelong learning.

charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - In Carol Whittington's kindergarten classroom at South Jefferson Elementary, several educational processes are at work at the same time. Because kindergarten is traditionally the start of a child's educational journey, it is where teachers gauge what type of students they will be.
