Youngstown: With turmoil plaguing Youngstown City Schools, the President of the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education issues a call for the district to begin personalized blended learning.
Youngstown is certainly a failing school district with all kinds of problems. A recent editorial casts some light here. The schools are, academically, a “parent’s nightmare,” according to the local newspaper. Overseen by a state panel called the Academic Distress Commission, the locally-elected school board members seem to be confused as to their role.
As regular readers of this blog know, I am a huge proponent of blended learning, but it has to be done right. This guide is very helpful for schools considering blended learning. If blended can make it in Youngstown, it can make it anywhere.
