    HYPERBOLIC A RI school district has come up with a “magnet” school proposal that they think could “transform education.”

    There wouldn’t be a new building or a full week of classes. Instead, principals from Seekonk, Somerset-Berkley, Swansea, and Dighton-Rehoboth would each pick five sophomores to attend nine-week sessions at each of the participating schools every other Friday. Each school would focus on a different discipline. For the rest of the week, students would go to regular classes at their own schools.

    Let’s see- they’ll be attending one day every other week for nine weeks. In other words, the whole program will last five days. That’s not even a good start on a unit study.
