Listen to Freakonomics about the SCHOOL OF ONE

With an objective standard of success, teachers only perform at 13%. How should teaching be organized? The most talented teachers can't teach 25 different brains at the same time.

Choose your modality: Dine-in with a Live teacher, Take-out online with home-based learning, or have education Delivered with a private tutor.

What if all students had individual education, from teachers anywhere in the world?
With special software we can monitor the DAILY progress of each student, see trends where learning is getting stuck, and target both the students and the skills to teach the teachers how to teach better.

There have been some big changes at School of One since this episode originally aired. Joel Klein, you probably know, left his job as schools chancellor (and landed in a very different universe). And Joel Rose left School of One to start a new non-profit organization that hopes to take the mixed-modality model national. We’ll be sure to update his progress on this blog. It’s quite possible that cities across the country will soon start experimenting with a classroom experience that looks very much like what School of One has been doing in New York.
