Personalized learning. It sounds like something that would be good for our students, but that is not the case. Our guest today warns that instead of teachers spending more individual time with your student, personalized learning decreases the time teachers spend one-on-one with students.

Jane Robbins, an attorney and senior fellow with American Principles Project, joins Shane Vander Hart to discuss this educational fad that is present in schools throughout the nation. They also consider how educational technology used for personalized learning impacts students and why that should concern parents as well.

She even says that personalized learning conflicts with scientific reality, ignoring what works to help students commit information to their long-term memories. (So much for education reformers advancing evidence-based practices.)

Robbins recently wrote articles at Truth in American Education and The American Spectator on the subject.
