In a Digital Future, Textbooks Are History

Is it time for APS to move out of the past and into the future?

Are APS students doomed to suffer the cemetery seating model forever?

In the digital future, students do not fall behind because they miss a day of school; they can keep up at home. Students will not be left behind by classes that move through the curriculum at a faster pace than they are able. Students will not be slowed down in their education, as they tread water waiting for the slowest students to catch up.

The fly in the ointment? leadership that cannot or will not accept the change and will continue to insist that 35 kids with nothing in common but the year they were born, can and should be, sat down in five rows of six, and moved lockstep in the same direction and at the same speed for 12 years.
