Episode 12: Districts of Innovation

AW0913EminenceInd10667Kentucky recently introduced the Districts of Innovation program, which seeks to mimic the success of charter schools by allowing schools (or school districts) to be exempt from certain regulations and education policy. Schools can apply to change the school schedule, to use competency-based learning, to explore new pathways to graduation, etc.

In this episode of the Innovation Update, Josh talks with David Cook – Director of Innovation at the Kentucky Department of Education – and Gary Houchens, an associate professor at Western Kentucky University, about the new program and where charter schools fit into the discussion.
