Handhelds, Business-Casual, And Cubicles At Anchorage Charter School
from the get-'em-started-early dept
In Anchorage Alaska this week, school officials have approved a plan for a new charter school that will have students in cubicles, wearing business casual clothing, and toting handheld computers. It’s sort of a vocational school for business-inclined kids. While it will handle students in grades 7 through 12, there won’t be a regular yearly progression from grade to grade, as each student will get to progress (or not??) at their own level. I guess it’s sort of a young capitalist’s school. The idea is that students who graduate can go on to college, or can just go straight into the business world, prepared to work in an office environment.
