Kids show up for online learning classes at high school

Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle

Every weekday morning, the 65 high school students enrolled in a new San Francisco charter school show up in a conference room of a Union Square hotel, flip on their computers and start class. A handful of teachers are present, but they don’t tell the teens what to do. And for the most part, the teachers don’t teach – at least in the old-fashioned way. In this free alternative public school, students are entrusted to learn on their own, each at his or her own pace, and almost entirely online.
