One of the first things I found surprising was in the reading from “Keeping Pace.”  The chart on page 76 showing enrollment numbers for the last three years caught me off guard as I expected numbers to increase.   It seems that a majority (or more than there should be) of states have seen a decline … Continue reading Digital Learning

Reflections on Readings from Week 4
