Each student in Vermont soon will be asked to develop personalized learning plans tailored to their career interests and future goals. The state Department of Education has launched a website to help students, families and educators prepare for the effort, which will begin next year with seventh- and ninth-grade students. Speaking to high-school students and staff, Gov. Peter Shumlin said the plans will help all students. "The idea here is -- whether you are dyslexic like me and don't learn traditionally or whether you excel traditionally or whether you're somewhere in the middle -- our job is to have an educational system where everybody succeeds and everybody learns to their potential," he said.
