Last week, ExcelinEd Policy Director for Personalized Learning Karla Phillips discussed the national policy trends supporting mastery-based, personalized learning before the Idaho House and Senate education committees.
“We believe the power of a personalized approach supported by a mastery-based structure has the potential to better inform students and their families with an accurate view of their academic progress. Rather than advancing based on seat-time and borderline grades, this learning model ensures graduates are truly prepared for success in education and in life.
“Understanding that mastery-based education and personalized learning are at their core local initiatives, our goal is to help state policymakers discover the policies that will incentivize local innovation, remove obstacles to successful implementation and support efforts to scale innovative models.”
