  • Still more encouraging, our data show that when students work at their own pace, the need for traditional tracking and labeling goes away. Given the time and personal instruction needed to master core topics, supposedly "slower" students are often able to speed ahead. Within weeks, they look "advanced."

      Sure... but to extend this model further than mere "support", it removes the highly skilled teacher who can/should make the learning meaningful, relevant, interesting,... Simply completing skill-based tutorials does nothing for the child who needs something different or does not enjoy mathematics. Teachers are questioners, connectors, inspirers, relationship-builders,... not just traffic directors making sure everyone gets plugged in to the skill-based lessons that they need.
