Yes, according to Ian Quillen’s Education Week piece State, Local Policies Seen to Slow Personalized Learning. The problem is how to change to more flexible policies without creating “unintended new side effects”. Some educational leaders recommend gradual change, while others suggest total revamping of policies relating to time-seat mandates, competency/proficiency, and textbooks. In addition to the need to revise policies that don't seem to be working because of new methods of learning, policies need to be established related to mobiles devices, social networking, Digital safety, common core standards, learning alternatives, etc. With the pace of technology change, newly established policies will need to be written with a look to the future rather than the status quo. Creating such policies will be a challenge for districts and states.
