This High School Adopted (De)personalized Education for All, Thanks to Laurene Powell Jobs

A California public high school received a grant of $10 million from Laurene Powell Jobs to redesign itself. Guess what? They have gone whole hog for “personalized learning.” Known on this Blog as Depersonalized Learning. This is where the computer mines your data all day long and you develop a close relationship with the computer.

Meanwhile the giants of Silicon Valley send their own children to a Waldorf school in Los Gatos that prohibits screens in school and discourages them at home. Wonder what they do at the school attended by Mrs. Jobs’ kiddoes.

“We are literally building the plane as we are flying it,” Principal Anthony Barela said”

They used to say that very thing when they introduced the Common Core. Remember that? Always a bad idea to build the plane in mid-air, especially when children are on board.
