School ditches online learning program after parents revolt

The exterior of the board of education headquarters in Cheshire, Conn. Schools in the town have suspended use of the Summit Learning program, a go-at-your-own-pace personalized online learning platform built by a California charter school network with help from Facebook engineers. Parents who organized against it said there was no need to change what’s worked in a town with a prized reputation for good schools. Superintendent Jeffrey Solan said he accepted the change was too much for some, and announced the program would be suspended.
