Today's Newsletter: What's going on in Mooresville, NC?

From the Hindsight is 20-20 file:

One of Tech&Learning’s favorite case studies back at the beginning of this decade was Mooresville, NC School District and the Superintendent Mark Edwards. Mooresville became a poster child of sorts for the 1:1 movement at the time, thanks to a bump in student scores right as implementation of the program began.

But was it all #fakenews? This recent study by academics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro may indicate as much. Granted, I did not plunk down the $36 to download the entire report but did dig into this synopsis by Jill Barshay at The Hechinger Report, which dampens any continuing hoopla about new tech equaling high scores.
