Kids using FREE Khan Academy School

Taxpayer funded schools using FREE math instruction videos available to anyone on the web? What will they think of next?

“Traditionally, these kids aren’t real motivated math learners, so to see them plowing through this – it’s really exciting to see them this engaged,” said Courtney Cadwell, the Egan instructor overseeing the pilot program.

Khan Academy is a not-for-profit organization with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. The curriculum comprises more than 1,800 videos covering content in math and science, one concept at a time.
