Vt. students to create personalized learning plans to help them reach goals
Each student in Vermont soon will be asked to develop personalized learning plans tailored to their career interests and future goals. The state Department of Education has launched a website to help students, families and educators prepare for the effort, which will begin next year with seventh- and ninth-grade students. Speaking to a high school's students and staff, Gov. Peter Shumlin said the plans will help all students. "The idea here is -- whether you are dyslexic like me and don't learn traditionally or whether you excel traditionally or whether you're somewhere in the middle -- our job is to have an educational system where everybody succeeds and everybody learns to their potential," he said.
