In Alberta, Canada, 113 schools are participating in an initiative known as High School Redesign, adopting flexible programs for students that are tailored to individual schools and offer students more choices. "(Before) it didn't matter if (the student) needed more time to learn or if they were one of those bright students who sat in the physics class totally bored. Alberta Education allowed those 16 schools to become risk takers and build in flexibility, opportunity and choice for kids to be more successful," principal Darlene Marcinkevics said of the original 16 schools to pilot the method.
