I was glad to see Steve Zimmer addressing the question of "online recovery programs" in this interview, because ever since there was a miraculous surge in graduation rates this spring due to these courses, I've been scratching my head. Something this instantaneous just doesn't seem as if it would be either rigorous OR long-lasting. We've all had the experience of cramming for an exam, squeaking through based on an all-nighter, and remembering absolutely nothing a week later. This may enable the district to brag about graduation rates, but it does nothing to educate our young people.by Heidi Preston
