One of the much-hyped new ideas of our time is the “School of One.” This is a new use of technology in the classroom.
It was declared a success in 2009 by Time magazine before it was ever implemented anywhere.
It was created by TFA alum, Broad-trained, ex-Edison, ex-NYC DOE executive Joel Rose and implemented on a pilot basis in the New York City public schools.
There are two different stories embedded in The School of One.
There is the story of the business of education, and School of One is a cutting-edge venture in edu-business.
The other is whether it is pedagogically sound. On this count, Gary Rubinstein has posted an informative review.
