Ypsi: Schools

The NBC affiliate Click on Detroit reports that Ypsilanti will open a “New Tech” high school in the fall, creating a computer-based educational experience. Each student will be given a laptop to use in focusing on collaboration and long-term projects, including ones with local businesses. Carl McAllister, a student at the school, is especially excited by the independence associated with the school, while school official Cory McElmeel says, “We’re not only teaching the content but we’re teaching them how to have good work ethic. We’re teaching them how to be good collaborators and good time managers. All of those things are instructed and assessed at New Tech.” [Source]
