As a growing number of schools across the United States adopt blended learning and personalized learning instructional models, we increasingly see examples of misperceptions, incomplete or inaccurate accounts, and even misinformation in the news media and in public discourse.
We created BlendedLearningFacts, a project of the Lexington Institute
think tank, to address these, and to provide complete and accurate information in a timely manner to correct the record. Where available, definitive reporting of student outcomes compared with other schools serving comparable student populations in close proximity are provided, along with links for more information.
We hope you will check back often for updates.
