This is a really innovative way to think about teaching and learning. I'm curious to know about how the program was initially received by parents and other teachers. Is there a selection process for students or can any student enroll?

I think it is a great idea, but I see many hurdles. We all know how the government and some educators resist change. Standardized tests have been criticized for years. Most people realize that our current school system needs an overhaul, but it's going to take a long time to see those changes happen.

I think its tough that time allocated for studying goes down due to pressure form other graded classes. Love how the students are taking ownership of their own education. Assessment of the school based on accessibility could go a long way for some of us.

I like the idea that the students in high school develop their PLN and create their own classes (curriculum) that they are interested in.
