The New York Post published a story on a NYC High School program called ‘Blended Learning’ which allowed students to take courses on-line for credit – nothing inherently wrong with that – exccept this ‘Blended Learning’ program was a joke. The coursework was ridiculously easy, there were no controls to prevent cheating, and students demonstrated no mastery of the material after completing the online course. Students began blowing off normal classroom work because ‘blended learning’ was so much easier and credits counted the same.
So, after the Post did its expose, students were encouraged by the school’s administrators to write letters defending the program. The results were, to summarize in one word, FAIL.
“What do you get of giving false accusations im one of the students that has blended learning I had a course of English and I passed and and it helped a lot you’re a reported your support to get truth information other than starting rumors . . .”
Blended learing is actaully helping us all who need the credit to graduate on time cause we dont want to be left behind. we need to move on with our lives.
“Us as New York City Students deserve respect and encouragement. We are the future of New York City and for some students, The future of the country.”
All of these students are now eminently qualified to leave comments at Breitbart.com stating how stupid they think Sarah Palin is.
