Can Personalized Learning Happen in Public Schools?
This week, Matt and Courtney talk about whether or not personalized learning can happen in schools. We talk about the bills in the Maine Legislature to delay and/or repeal the law requiring proficiency-based diplomas, and what that means for the movement.

What IS the point of changing to personalized learning? Here's one of many discussions to come.
