If, and this is a big if, we have small class sizes for at-risk students the suggestions possibly work. For example, blending various modes of learning is important and so is highs-speed Internet. What I found was that many at-risk students needed assistance in the early stages and this takes a different School structure than we have. In Alberta, we are working towards inclusive classes and decreasing the number of teachers. I am not sure that works.
