Just like charter schools, Taylor County provides students with options to meet different needs and ambitions. In fact, Taylor County’s superintendent, Roger Cook, proudly announced to everyone’s surprise during a recent meeting of the Interim Joint Education Committee that he is operating an “illegal charter school” in his district as one of his various approaches to different student needs.
Now, it’s nice to see the major media starting to catch up to us with good news about Taylor County. Check out CN|2’s comments and videos about how Taylor County gets the job done for its students in many innovative and unique ways.
By the way, one of the two CN|2 videos explains using “flipped classrooms” as one of the effective ways Taylor County makes things more effective for students.
I am a huge fan of the digital learning based flipped learning approach. I was involved with the same approach more than four decades ago as the first program developer for the first generation of automated teaching machines ever used in the United States Air Force’s pilot training program. Flipped learning worked great for our nation’s future aviators, and now in places like Taylor County it is starting to work for our K to 12 students, too (BTW, I have been looking for anyone in Kentucky with a longer experience with flipped learning than I have. So far, no takers).
