Personalized Learning: A Waste of Time, or the Answer to America's Education Issues?

Mary Jo Madda

EdSurge has been all over the place these last few weeks— from the Educon conference in Philadelphia to Washington D.C. for Teach for America’s 25th anniversary Summit. And at every location, the conversations have been anything but boring.

When it comes to big themes, one conversation in particular caught our podcasting attention. Summit Public Schools CEO Diane Tavenner, and founder of Deans for Impact Benjamin Riley, went head to head on whether “personalized learning” is the answer to solving the achievement gap. We were there to catch a few sound bytes.
