Blended Learning Saves 20%-25% per pupil costs while improving learning

Source: NY Post, Feb 2013

Blended learning delivers another efficiency that should be music to the ears of taxpayers — sustainable per-pupil savings. Using this approach, San Francisco’s Catholic K-8 Mission Dolores Academy has slashed per-pupil costs by 20 percent in two years, while student test scores have jumped.

Another blended-learning school, Carpe Diem Collegiate Charter HS in Yuma, Ariz., has been termed a “school of the future.” Per-pupil costs are a quarter less than the state average — while more than 90 percent of students are proficient or advanced in reading and math.

Blended learning does more for less because its model requires fewer but better teachers.
