7 Innovative Ideas that are Being Used in Schools

Education reporter Emily Alpert shares seven of the most interesting ideas she came across while writing about San Diego schools this year.

Check all the ideas out here.

I'm a recently retired school teacher/administrator continuing to help people grow through personal learning. When not blogging, I do consulting work for schools and organizations, make presentations at conferences, and research for publication. At the same time, I have to set aside enough time to enjoy the "good life" of retirement!
