Tue 9/24/13 Noon & 7PM Last session the legislature mandated that all students in grades 7 through 12 develop personalized learning plans. What does that mean exactly? Some schools around the state have been experimenting with personalized learning for a while, and Mount Abraham  High School in Bristol is one of them.

We’ll get an in-depth look at the program at Mount Abe with John Clarke, author of Personalized Learning: Student-Designed Pathways to High School Graduation, and with state Board of Education member Krista Huling. Leave your comments or questions below or write to vermontedition@vpr.net

Also in the program, a Vermont Reverend who’s also a principal at a college in Pakistan, talks about the deadly bombing in Peshawar this past weekend, at a Church where he’s preached over the past 2 years.

And finally, we'll get our kicks on Route 66. That's State Route 66 in Vermont- it's 10 miles long and runs from Randolph to East Randolph.
