  • Ohio Students earn course credits while they travel

    2010-03-08

    High school students across the Buckeye State may soon have clearance to fly wherever they like - provided they write a paper about their experience, of course. Ohio has introduced a new credit flexibility plan that will require all public school boards to adopt new standards of education that focuses less on time spent in the classroom and more on demonstrated academic skill and performance.

    Beginning in the fall, Ohioan students will have the option of completing high school credits through traditional coursework, testing out of a program through sheer knowledge and skill or pursuing radical education options like distance learning, independent study, internships, personal projects and more.

    "This opens up a lot of options and alternative methods for [the students] to earn credit," Superintendent Rob Walker told the Lancaster Eagle Gazette. "I'm interested in seeing where we'll end up. We're still in the draft stage right now, and we'll be working with other districts to finalize a plan."

    These newfound freedoms would grant students visiting foreign countries the ability to learn world history firsthand and demonstrate this knowledge for course credit, rather than in a more traditional in-class curriculum.
