The Mis-appropariation of Personalized Learning

August 15, 2016

On Saturday, Diane Ravitch wrote a post lamenting the expropriation of the term “personalized learning” by the education industry.

It is unfortunate that, once again, a valid descriptor has been appropriated by the education industry. Ted Sizer was an education reformer in the true sense of the word, now Bill Gates and Michelle Rhee are “reformers”. Vermont wrote a law requiring personalized learning plans that would be developed by human beings. Now personalized learning plans are algorithms developed by reformers who see computers as our salvation.
