Trimble County Middle School Principal Mike Genton delivered a very interesting and thought-provoking talk about future middle school education to the Bedford Rotary Club on August 18. A major theme throughout seemed to be the importance of individualized learning now, and into the future.
“We must meet the kids where they are, work hard for individualist learning, and take the kids where they need to be,” Genton said.
