Knowledge, Learning, Community

Tony Bates summarizes this article from the Hechinger Report on competency-based learning in a California school district. There's some discussion about the planning and personalization, and then this: "Almost 90 percent of the district's students and their families have access to free internet at home, as a result of the city providing free community Wi-fi." Bates comments, "I was also interested to learn that this model worked best for younger and more disadvantaged students during the pandemic, compared with comparable school systems who moved more traditional classes online." A lesson, maybe, for Ontario?
