Abstract

This study examined the ways public schools are redistributing existing resources and changing policies to continue student academic achievement through non-traditional teaching methods and the satisfaction of these non-traditional methods. Salient points in history of reform, technology innovations, satisfaction of charter schools, "blended leaning," and cost-effectiveness of programming were used to justify and to support the need for a study that addressed how the non-traditional organizational, educational and structural tenets of a "Blended Learning Curriculum" within a charter school can affect learning of students by investigating cost-effectiveness and satisfaction, as compared to the same "blended learning curriculum being used in a traditional school setting.
