At-risk children have demonstrated that the traditional industrial model of education does not work well for them, yet the majority continue to be educated in this fashion. With the evolving ability to incorporate technology into education, the potential exists to cease the education of at-risk students through means that have proven ineffective and develop innovative personalized methods to meet their educational needs. Innovations in education are occurring which show the promise of highly impacting all students, including those designated as “at-risk.” Mastery-based, personalized instructional models with blended or hybrid instructional delivery is a disruptive educational innovation which when linked with the use of teachers as mentors can provided the framework to develop student-teacher relationships while providing students’ academic choice over pace, place, time, and path. .
