Parents are pleased with personalized learning initiatives at their schools in Henry County, Georgia, which customizes the curriculum for each student
"One of the things that I really like is that it gives my kids an opportunity to work at their pace, so if my kids have completed the work that's required at the level where they are, they can move up,” said parent Brandy Smith.
Teachers like personalized learning too, saying that it keeps students engaged. Students who master a skill can move forward to a higher level, while those who struggle can receive more attention in a specific area.
"It's very engaging getting the kids to figure out what they're missing so we can fill the gaps so they can move on in a progressional path,” said teacher Camille Bratton.
The goal for the Henry County School District is t0 have personalized learning implemented in all 50 schools by 2020. Right now, personalized learning is currently in 23 of the schools.
